Trade SecretJune 2, 2011
Hi there! It’s raining hard on this side of the world and I can’t go out of the house, I’m stuck here on our veranda watching downpours reading this medical magazine.
I’m supposed to be nostalgic during rainy moments like this, but my spirit was ruffled when I read the side effects of a drug called Zoloft that was released by Pfizer in 1992.
Zoloft was promoted to alleviate depression, post traumatic stress disorder, panic or anxiety disorder and premenstrual dysphoric disorder, since its release it made around $1 billion dollars, that's a lot of money.
But through time, there has been a lot of negative reports surfacing about the negative effects of this drug, patients who were treated turned out to be violent, hostile and has even developed that suicidal behavior, this is such a gross side effect, that for one thing the company has not revealed because of the so-called trade secret.
There are a lot of zoloft lawsuits filed on US courts today claiming damages against the company, and if you’re one of those who have suffered, or one of your family members it’s time to rise up and say your piece and let the these giant pharma deem accountable of their wrong doings.
