114 cases of death with Strattera as
Primary Suspect Drug reported to the FDA, 2004 - March 2010. See http://www.lamplightersoftware.com/strattera.html
137 cases of death with Strattera
involved reported to the FDA 2004 – March 2010.
57 children and teenagers have died, 28 of them committed suicide. See summary http://jannel.se/StratteraDeath5.pdf
The children getting Strattera can be expected to be healthy normal children and in this group of “patients” there
SHOULD BE extremely low morbidity and mortality.
As seen above it is not: 57 children and teenagers who got Strattera “for ADHD” are reported to HAVE DIED.
consulting psychiatrists are told their children are suffering from a
“chemical imbalance” in the brain and that Strattera (and other ADHD
drugs) will correct that. This is a fraudulent statement. Parents who
are told that story should ask for a laboratory test. They would then
get to know that there is no test available; that the statement about
chemical imbalance is just speculation.
there is nothing medically wrong with these children to begin with (the
drugs cannot be prescribed to children with known physical diseases)
harmful effects seen are DRUG INDUCED – they are not any form of
“underlying disease” showing up. The heart disorders, the liver
disorders, the seizure disorders are caused by the drugs. The
“psychiatric symptoms” showing up –
suicidality, aggression, mania and psychosis with hallucinations – are TOXIC EFFECTS OF THE DRUGS.
The responsible medical authorities (FDA in US, UK MHRA in
Europe) have not done an independent investigation of all the cases of death – they do not even have a compilation of these.
They have so far relied on data and analysis from the
manufacturer Eli Lilly, who is only interested in one thing: To explain
away all instances of death and increase profits.
FDA and MHRA have failed to protect children from the harmful effects
caused by this drug – and they have not even cared to do an
of all the reported cases of death.
