very scary story.

Don't want to distress anyone taking Seroxat but important that people know about this.

Glaxo has previously been accused of covering up data that showed an increase in suicides in people taking this drug, especially teenagers. And five years ago they, and the Royal College of Psychiatrists, were insisting that it was 'not addictive', telling patients they were imagining it. hmm

I took Seroxat for about a year, it really helped me.

When i wanted to concieve again i was told that it would be dangerous to do that.

When i came off it it, i had to do it very slowley as i did get quite bed withdrawel symptoms, so it must be addictive.
