25 May 2016,

Bailey Peavy Bailey Cowan Heckaman Files Lawsuits Over Paxil/paroxetine GlaxoSmithKline, plc (GSK) developed and marketed Paxil/paroxetine  and has been litigating for more than a decade against cases brought on behalf of children born with congenital birth defects allegedly linked to Paroxetine exposure during pregnancy. 

 

In 2005, at FDA's request, GSK revised the Paroxetine  pregnancy warning to include a statement that Paroxetine use during pregnancy may increase the risk of fetal harm.  Paroxetine  is the only antidepressant to include this warning.

 

Adam Peavy, lead counsel for the plaintiffs, says,

"These are the first of what we believe will be many cases that will be filed against GSK on behalf of children with autism spectrum disorder."

 

The alarming increase in the number of ASD cases has imposed a tremendous economic cost upon the nation, local school districts and families.  The CDC estimates that the total economic cost per year for children with ASD ranges from $11.5 billion - $60.9 billion (2011 US dollars).

 

Mario D'Angelo, co-counsel for plaintiffs, says,

"Taxpayers and local school districts should not have to bear the burden of providing services for those injured by GSK's negligence.

 

We are investigating what legal remedies our clients' local school districts may have to recover these costs from GSK.

 

The number of reported autism spectrum disorder (ASD) cases in the United States has skyrocketed by more than 750% since 1998.  The ASD epidemic has coincided with the explosive increase in the use antidepressants during pregnancy. 

 

The number of women of childbearing age taking antidepressants increased 400% between 1994 and 2008.

 

Since 2011, epidemiological studies have reported an increased risk of ASD in children of mothers who took antidepressants like paroxetine  during pregnancy.

None of the published articles shed light on what ssri's ... actually do or what their hazards might be. Healy 2013. 

This is so true, with anything you get on these drugs, dependance, tapering, withdrawal symptoms, side effects, just silent. And if there is something mentioned then their is a serious disconnect between what is said and reality! 

  "Every time I read of a multi-person shooting, I always presume that person had just started a SSRI or had just stopped."  Dr Mosher. Me too! 

Over two decades later, the number of antidepressant prescriptions a year is slightly more than the number of people in the Western world. Most (nine out of 10) prescriptions are for patients who faced difficulties on stopping, equating to about a tenth of the population. These patients are often advised to continue treatment because their difficulties indicate they need ongoing treatment, just as a person with diabetes needs insulin. Healy 2015

So far it seems to me only possible attention to this global crime of Ssri is the money concern, which is better than nothing, but makes sad and mad that people's lives and suffer are insignificant to money.

 

What a cruel world and what's wrong with the human being!

Thanks very much for finding and sharing this, NZ. It's really criminal and I'm also very bothered by the huge increase in the number of kids being given psych meds. We hear this criticized all over the media, but nothing happens to halt the rush to screw up the children. If this had been happening when I was a kid I'd have been dosed to the gills and my poor mother, who had a "nervous breakdown" from which she recovered completely after a few months, would have been medicated for life, passing the foul drugs on to my sister and me prenatally.

 

I clicked on your link and it was dead, but I found this http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/bailey-peavy-bailey-cowan-heckaman-files-lawsuits-over-paxil-300274621.html.

Diagnosed w/ ADD and minor depression in 1990. Fluoxetine 20 mg/day. Also methylphenidate, but hated it and quit after about a week. Quit fluoxetine cold turkey (ignorance) 18 January 2013. Experienced brain zaps, flu symptoms, heart palpitations. Nothing after August 2013. Mirtazapine 15 mg/day for sleep beginning around 1999. Began tapering August 2013.  As of March 2015 I'm off mirtazapine and antidepressant free. Don't sleep well after sunrise, feel anxious and sad some of the time, still have tinnitus. Still occasionally take lorazepam for anxiety but never more than 1 mg.  Prescribed metoprolol (beta blocker) for atrial fibrillation diagnosed June 2013. Medical  opinion (two cardiologists) is that it's not caused by fluoxetine w/drawal and is a dangerous, chronic condition requiring lifelong medication. As of Aug 2013 heart palpitations for the most part ceased. Tapered beta blocker and am off of it as of Jan 2015. No wd symptoms or recurring afib at all so far. Maybe it was wd after all, but doctors don't think so, surprise surprise. However, a small victory: the last doctor I related this to shrugged her shoulders. Getting lots of exercise, which has me physically pretty robust at age 71 in spite of persistence of mirt wd symptoms, mainly insomnia and anxiety, but also jaw-clenching annoyance at noises of a certain pitch and timbre. Incessant media fixation on the presidential campaign has ruined my disposition and my faith in the future. My Introduction.

Sad.  Nobody even wanted to follow us.........I mean professionally..........my son and I.  I did my whole pregnancy on an MAO inhibitor.  Sad.  I was still a medical professional and asked to be........my shrink at the time said..........oh, good point but........noooooooooo.  In all honesty though.....it would have been chaos no doubt had they taken me off "their way" during.  I did that later.......with poor results and much further medication.

 

I just wish I had the know how and energy to start some kind of behavioral(for lack of a better term) preschool or after school program with other ways to address children who are challenged or challenging for parents.  I think that there used to be a lot more of that kind of intervention available for families and kids........pre "the overmedication of everyone".

 

Sad though........hope my young adult boy makes it.........positive "rooting" thoughts for him please.  If anyone can be just "a little autistic or a little aspergers" well........that's my dear son.

 

I can't even read the links right now.......

12/2015---just holding, holding, holding, with trileptal/oxcarb at 75 mg. 1/2 tab at hs.  My last psycho med ever!  Tapered @ 10% every 4 weeks, sometimes 2 weeks to

I bet it is not the only AD to cause "fetal harm" nice lawyer words.  Once a company posts a warning about a side effect of a drug be it wd or fetal harm it apparently makes it bullet proof to litigation as you have been warned.. it does not have to be included with the drug when you first pick it up at the drug store... that sheet you get only once here in Canada will have a few of the issues but not all of them ... not by a long shot... just  a few.  They don't have to present you with the information they just have to make it publicly accessible ...putting it on the FDA website is good enough... that is your informed consent.. so paxil makers are quickest to cover their butts using the most generic term ... as they likely have science in their vaults that investigators don't know yet.. and they can't spill the beans tell them what the drug actually cause it.. yep it is a good generic term. 

That is how it works... discontinuation was added to all the labels long after I started taking the drug... so it does not cover me when I was looking for a  lawyer none would take a wd case.  There is a new idea that since the makers don't know how the drugs work all of us have been 4 stage trial participants for years and we did not consent to that it is being examined now to see if it will fly.

WARNING THIS WILL BE LONG
Had a car accident in 85
Codeine was the pain med when I was release from hosp continuous use till 89
Given PROZAC by a specialist to help with nerve pain in my leg 89-90 not sure which year
Was not told a thing about it being a psych med thought it was a pain killer no info about psych side effects I went nuts had hallucinations. As I had a head injury and was diagnosed with a concussion in 85 I was sent to a head injury clinic in 1990 five years after the accident. I don't think they knew I had been on prozac I did not think it a big deal and never did finish the bottle of pills. I had tests of course lots of them. Was put into a pain clinic and given amitriptyline which stopped the withdrawal but had many side effects. But I could sleep something I had not done in a very long time the pain lessened. My mother got cancer in 94 they switched my meds to Zoloft to help deal with this pressure as I was her main care giver she died in 96. I stopped zoloft in 96 had withdrawal was put on paxil went nutty quit it ct put on resperidol quit it ct had withdrawal was put on Effexor... 2years later celexa was added 20mg then increased to 40mg huge personality change went wild. Did too fast taper off Celexa 05 as I felt unwell for a long time prior... quit Effexor 150mg ct 07 found ****** 8 months into withdrawal learned some things was banned from there in 08 have kept learning since. there is really not enough room here to put my history but I have a lot of opinions about a lot of things especially any of the drugs mentioned above.
One thing I would like to add here is this tidbit ALL OPIATES INCREASE SEROTONIN it is not a huge jump to being in chronic pain to being put on an ssri/snri and opiates will affect your antidepressants and your thinking.

As I do not update much I will put my quit date Nov. 17 2007 I quit Effexor cold turkey.

Yah.........I don't think I would ever go the legal route...........much more likely to warn some younger woman and help them safely go off whatever prescribed substance.  Tis crazy making though........especially in the NOW of things...........when so many of these "hippocratic and do no harm" physicians just keep on keeping on with same old................  At least here in the states they seem to be the leading authorities on mental health care, yet show up at no peer type conferences or such.  Too busy, busy I guess to care........to really care.........

 

Hey........gives me an idea.  When I'm well enough or further healed I should make multiple appointments with those shrinks on my insurance plan...........as for a mere co-pay I could hit them with a packet of collected articles and wisdom..........even summarize it for them...........and ask them to join me in support of better programs and services.

 

They are getting more careful, at least a few from what I hear...........not just in covering their own rather large butts(egos).........but in prescribing.  The weird thing..........back when I was working at a teaching hospital.......twice I recall an intern or resident not doing well...........and then being "shunted" off to change their tract to psychiatry.........as it was looked upon as the lesser of the truly medical areas or somehow easier to get by in for those having problems in pediatric rotations. 

 

Again........were talking a couple decades ago when this happened.

Hmmm. Let's see if we can guess what medications these kids will be given to treat their 'condition'?

2001: 20mg paroxetine
