Blackjack- You've hit the nail on the head. I gave the exact same opinion to someone on another board (I'm a lawyer). My understanding is that Peter Breggin is involved in this lawsuit. Anything he touches is likely to be on the hysterical side IMO.


> Y'know, this lawsuit would have a much better chance if they didn't keep referring to Paxil withdrawl in terms of "addiction." Paxil is not addictive. It does not produce a craving for more Paxil. It does not cause people to seek out the drug despite negative consequences. It doesn't produce a tolerence. It just has a withdrawl syndrome. While most addictive drugs have withrawl symptoms, simply having withdrawl symptoms does not make a drug addictive.
> This suit's merits would be much stronger if it focussed on the possibility that SKB failed to accurately report negative side effects when they became aware of them. By talking about Paxil like it was Morphine, they are undermining their own case.
