4.0 su 5 stelle Bob Comes Back Swinging 7 dicembre 2014
Di Laurie Oakley - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
In his book, The Evidence, However, is Clear, Bob Fiddaman spends precious little time focused on all the misery the drug, Seroxat (Paxil in the US), caused him. However, he did cover the subject in such a way that I, as a survivor of a similar story, almost had to put the book down. The short chapters describing the havoc this drug caused him don't make for light reading. Bob suffered important life losses because of a medication that was (and still is) recklessly promoted by the drug industry giant, GlaxoSmithKline. Despite his suffering, or rather because of it, Bob comes back swinging.

The lion's share of this book describes the ways in which he confronted GlaxoSmithKline and the UK's drug regulatory agency. He used his blog to detail everything about Seroxat including how it came to market, the dangers that were routinely covered up or dismissed, and how it affected the lives of so many others. The blog gains the company's attention more than few times, and the way all of that plays out makes for interesting reading. I, personally, loved Bob's pain-in-the-ass approach, which would have made the book comical had the subject been anything remotely funny.

A big takeaway for me came from a section in the book where he clearly illustrates how responsibility for drug safety information shifts depending on which part of the system you talk to. A drug company might say, "talk to your doctor," while your doctor will say, "the drug company would know," on and on ad nauseam.

I would recommend this book to anyone seeking a deeper understanding of just how drug companies, healthcare systems, and regulatory agencies work synergistically to end up delivering dangerous treatments to unsuspecting patients

5.0 su 5 stelle The Consumer Speaks Out 21 agosto 2011
Di J. Douglas Bremner - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Bobby Fiddaman has written an interesting and well written book about his personal experiences taking the antidepressant Seroxat (Paxil, or paroxetine in the US), his struggles with withdrawal, and his work as an advocate raising attention related to the potential side effects of this drug. Fiddaman has a popular blog (Seroxat Sufferers: Stand Up and Be Counted) where he has worked tirelessley to get members of the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA, the equivalent of the FDA in the US) to highlight potential side effects of the drug, most notably the range of cognitive and neurological and psychiatric problems that some people experience coming off the drug, such as himself. Fiddaman highlights the marketing campaign by the maker of Seroxat, GSK and others, to "sell" depression as deficiency of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain (it's not) and their drug as the cure that will boost serotonin and cure depression (researchers have known for years that this explanation was bogus, but were too cowed by the drug companies to pipe up about it, I guess). He also highlights the revolving door where doctors go from high positions in drug companies, to drug regulatory agencies, and sometimes to academic jobs and then back through the wheel again. Fiddaman's story is a testament to what health care consumers can achieve when they take charge of their treatments instead of passively following doctors advice without informing themselves about their own healthcare. He highlights the fact that pharmaceutical companies do not always have your best interests at heart (they are there to profit from their medications, after all) and you have to watch out.

By way of disclosure the author has told me on twitter (@dougbremner) that he is reading my latest book The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg in which I describe my experiences as a doctor giving paid speeches for GSK about Paxil as well as working as an expert on drug safety related issues in the courts. He also wrote a blog about the Goose book last year.

I recommend this book for anyone who has personal experiences with antidepressants or depression for themselves or family members, or for more insight into drug regulation and consumer advocacy. The writing is excellent and refreshingly honest.

You can follow the author on twitter @Fiddaman and read more about his book here.

5.0 su 5 stelle the money bag copy sent to employers with the heading "Why discontinuation syndrome is not a problem" 25 agosto 2014
Di Michelle R. Hart - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Bob, we have had so many long discussions and drawn out work. I am being serious here, do you ever get threats? I'm proud of you. In any case, glad we could expose this horrid truth to the world. The problem here is our Congress is paid off here. Know this, I have everything, I have the proof, and an attorney in Chicago has a copy of every document I have. Well done. Sarah's medical records show that she had pulmonary hypertension. You know we are doing our part, nipping it in the bud so all the new med students realize the politics behind this and how our government is being paid by this evil company.
Dr. and Mrs Hart.
