Interesting story over Christmas:
DOCUMENTS MISSING FROM A 10 YEAR OLD MURDER CASE SENT TO THE BMJ
[Documents indicating a link between SSRI antidepressant Prozac and side effects including agitation, mania and hostility, undeclared in a lawsuit in 1994, have been sent anonymously to the British Medical Journal]
In 1994 a lawsuit was filed on behalf of victims of a work-place shooting in 1989. The shooting was committed by Joseph Wesbecker who had been placed on fluoxetine (Prozac) one month before the shootings.
During this case documents reportedly went missing or were not disclosed. These 'missing' documents were sent to the British Medical Journal anonymously last month. The BMJ has stated that the documents indicate that Eli Lilly officials were aware in the 1980s that fluoxetine had 'troubling side effects' and sought to minimise any possible negative effects on prescribing.
