Prozac, Eli-Lilly and bribing the Swedish government.

“I bribed the Swedish Government to get the licence for Prozac”. These are the words of Dr. John Virapen who worked in the pharmaceutical industry for over 35 years.  I have written about Dr. Virapen before because he told me about the corruption he got up to when he worked for Lundbeck. Anyway before he was employed by Lundbeck he worked for Eli-Lilly who are the manufacturers of Prozac. He refers to bribing Swedish officials because Eli-Lilly told him his job depended on it. He also says that the pharmaceutical industry have been buying doctors, picking them up in medical scool and paying their tuition to influence their prescribing. His new you-tube video is here. Link.

He was at one stage in charge of a clinical study for Prozac in one of the largest hospitals in Stockholm. The first week of the trial two of the volunteers tried to commit suicide which he admits is a well known side-effect of ssri medication.

He says that the pharmaceutical industry is now trying to target children with these drugs, Strattera, Prozac, Ritalin, Paxil, Zoloft, Ect. and that hand picked psychiatrists, paid for by the pharma industry, meet once a year to come up with new “disorders”. (unetical psychiatrists? No way!)

He says in one year 157 people were either killed or seriously injured by Strattera, among the victims was a 3 year old girl.

Eli-Lilly; NY Times continues spotlight on Eli-Lilly corruption. Zyprexa deaths and Ghostwriting.

Eli Lilly treated the American public “like guinea pigs” says Harvard psychiatrist.

Scientist weeps at inquest into Prozac death.  Professor Hay told the coroner he was looking into the role of Prozac in his wife’s illness and whether the standard one-a-day 20mg dose was too much for some people.

Prozac killed my wife.

Eli Lilly, the manufacturers of Prozac, gave the usual Inquest statement: “There is no credible scientific evidence that establishes a causal connection between Prozac and violent or suicidal behaviour.”

So tell me, what do our politicians and IDA officials talk about when they meet up with Eli-Lilly personel? Looks like there having fun. I guess they’re not talking about Maria’s son Toran, who was 17 when he killed himself on Prozac. Link. Or maybe the murder/suicide of William and June Forsyth in Hawaii?  Link. Or was it the upcoming Prozac murder trial tommorrow? Link. What about the Wesbecker Trial which Eli-Lilly secretly settled while the trial was ongoing, or maybe they talked about Tracy Johnson the 19 year old volunteer who killed herself in the Lilly Lab during a drug trial? Link. No? Didn’t think so!

  1. Thanks Bobby,
    I have read his book, it’s brilliant. You should try to talk to him, he’s a nice man and full of information. I have talked to him on Skype a few times and hope to meet up with him soon in Germany. The things he can tell you will make your hair/bandana stand on end.


  2. Thanks Rose,
    No I hadn’t come across that before or anything like it. That’s unbelievable. I knew how unscrupulous they were from talking to John Virapen but I had never thought any drug company could be so blatently unetical. They are well aware of what can happen when a person changes from one antidepressant to another, changes dose ect, but I guess suicide, homicide or both doesn’t really matter when profits come before people. Shame on Eli-Lilly and the doctors/psychiatrists who bury their heads in the sand!
    There was also an investigation into hidden documents that suggested a link between Prozac and suicide attempts and violence.
