Cymbalta-The New Death Drug

Traci Johnson committed suicide while enrolled in clinical trials of Eli Lillty’s Cymbalta. She hanged herself from a shower in the Eli Lilly facility where the tests were being conducted.

Cymbalta is the new “wonder drug” designed by Eli Lilly to restore their flagging sales since Prozac ran out of patent.

Traci Johnson was not depressed prior to taking the drug. She was a normal happy girl who enrolled in the clinical trial as a healthy volunteer in order to earn money to pay for her college tuition. Anyone with any signs of depression was barred from the trials.

Traci’s death, and the death of four other people at the trial, were completely absent from the official records. The FDA backed this decision by Eli Lilly saying that the deaths were a confidential part of the trial.

As the FDA admits, the deaths of people in drug trials COUNT AS A COMMERCIAL SECRET IN THE WORLD OF PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES.

The obligingly acquiescent FDA has approved Cymbalta for the treatment of depressed patients. Big Pharma might have to slip the psychs a bit extra to push this one.
