GlaxoSmithKline Covering Up Paxil/Seroxat Data?

They’re imposing a gag order on someone that’s asking some fair questions. A link to Clinical Psychology and Psychiatry: A Closer Look has many links and the video in question. This is really outrageous and worth a look at the video and commentary at that blog.

Bob Fiddaman, who runs a website that frequently discusses issues associated with the antidepressant drug paroxetine (Paxil/Seroxat) reports that he recently received an intimidating letter from GlaxoSmithKline’s attorneys. Fiddaman posted a YouTube video in which he compared comments from GSK employee Alistair Benbow to statements and data gleaned from other sources. Benbow’s statements in the video are frequently in disagreement with other sources. According to Fiddaman, GSK was upset because he used their logo without permission and because Benbow has allegedly experienced “serious distress by such unwarranted harassment.”
