DID QUIT SMOKING DRUG KILL MAN?

Post  trueone on Mon Jan 21, 2008 8:00 am

A widow claimed yesterday that a drug designed to help smokers quit may have played a role in her husband's suicide.

Father-of-two Wayne Marshall, 36, was found hanged shortly after completing a 13-week course of Champix, which it is feared may have depressive side effects.

Figures from the MHRA show one patient has taken his life while on the drug, two others have attempted suicide and there have been 60 other "suicidal-type suspected adverse reactions" reported.

About 200,000 patients have been prescribed the drug in the UK since December 2006 and it was approved by the Health Service last July.

This is disgusting. The Govenment know these drugs are unsafe and basically untried, but all they care about is getting their money from these companies. This poor woman should take Gordon Stinking Brown to court.

How are these people getting away with all this, and more to the point, why are we letting them?

We have fingers don't we, and we have pens, all we have to do it put it in writing, on websites such as this, and then when it comes to polling day, put it in the form of our little cross on the ballot papers. Vote these bast ards out of office.
