Four Tonnes of Prozac

Fluoxetine, better known as Prozac, is poisoning English rivers and affecting fish life as reported in an earlier Blog.

It turns out that British doctors issued over 5,000,000 prescriptions for the drug in 2004 alone. Those 5,000,000 prescriptions equate to FOUR TONNES of Fluoxetine.

The Environment Agency, in wonderful English understatement, said that this could be enough to cause concern.
