Manufacturer Knew Prozac Was A Killer Drug!

Now we find more evidence that manufacturer Eli Lilly knew as early as 1980 that Prozac is a killer drug that could cause murder or suicide in users. The British Medical Journal published, and provided to U.S. regulators, confidential documents given to them by an anonymous source showing that Prozac heightened risk of suicide and attempts at violence.

The documents were originally part of a 1994 lawsuit in which victims of a workplace shooting in Kentucky were suing Lilly. Eight people were killed in that incident by a man who had just begun using Prozac a month earlier. (This was about the time of the infamous series of "postal worker" workplace murders following the widespread use of Prozac among postal employees whose insurance covered "mental health" as well as physical health.) Probably sensing that the trial would bring down their empire, Lilly settled with the plaintiffs secretly. Publicly the plaintiffs dropped the suit, making it appear that there was no case. Later, the secret settlement was revealed.

After that, the papers mysteriously disappeared for about a decade, even from court records.

Now we have them back. Not only does Prozac kill, but the people who make it know it kills. How much longer will the world put up with this criminality? It is time to do more than make the drug illegal. It is time to find out who knew this data, who suppressed this report, and indict them for manslaughter. Based on the numbers of suicides and murders that have been precipitated by the use of this drug, the number of manslaughter charges for such individuals could be in the thousands.

Alcohol may increase drowsiness and dizziness caused by Ambien. Do not crush, chew, or break the extended-release form Ambien XR. Swallow them whole. These tablets are specially formulated to release the medication slowly in the body.
