BBC Special on Dr. David Healy

Posted by Squiggles on July 29, 2002, at 8:02:38

For those who can receive this on the
net or on television, it may be of interest
particularly about SSRIs. Dr. David Healy
is not a Scientologist, to my knowledge:

I found an interesting journal - this is a tad
old, but pertinent to the ongoing debates:

If you mean Dr. David Healy, yes
-- he won a lawsuit against the University
of Toronto, and has maintained his position
a the Centre for Addiction Medicine ( i think
that is the name of the centre ); there are
tons of open documentation on the NET under
his name regarding this fight.

I am very happy that someone respectable
is taking on the Pharms - as criticism is
difficult to launch with the Scios tainting
the picture.

I wonder how hard it would be to convince him to come to the US?

Maybe Eli Lily would set up
a buffet for him, consisting
of Prozac, Seretoxine, and Zoloft
as h'ors d'oeuvres, LOL!

The FDA could pick up the TAB.

No, it's a tape (audio and visual) -
you can use the URL (i'm afraid i don't
presently have the instructions.

It was excellent, but not long enough.
The thing that struck me about it, was
that the Pharms' reps are so pit bullish
about protecting the product (in this
case PROZAC), in the face of testimonials.
While it is true that a minority of people
get akathisia or agitated depression or
violent outbursts, if these things were something
like a skin rash instead, i suspect the company
would be more cooperative.

Everyone loses in the end as it is and
risks propagating more harmful drugs.

I was interested to know because I have just been writing to him. He is now back in Wales, about 100 miles from where I live (England)

Wow,

He seemed like a very self-efacing man;
not at all arrogant.

Do you need instructions for logging into
the file? I'll have to ask my husband as
i am electronically impaired.
