DIDA adds Paxil documents

We're pleased to announce the addition of 296 documents obtained by the Project on Government Oversight (POGO) from litigation about Paxil (paroxetine), an antidepressant manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline. POGO investigators found that NIH continues to fund academic researchers who use ghostwriters to write journal articles and other scientific communications.

POGO asked NIH to "implement new policies that will require institutions to ban ghostwriting, and to make NIH funding contingent upon periodic certification from institutions that ghostwriting is strictly prohibited and that enforcement mechanisms such as disciplinary action and dismissal are in place."

The documents can be found here. And more information about the POGO investigation can be found here.


  1. I was put on Paxil when I was younger. I had no feelings at all and I didn't even realize it until I took myself off of it later on in life. When you don't care much for anything it can definitely change your character.

  2. This is sad to know that there are ghost writers who writes about this famous antidepressant drug Paxil. however, if it is true that there are many Paxil lawsuit that has been filed, i think people should at least know the possible controversy involving the product.
