Justice Scalia is an Oxymoron
In today's news. Eli Lilly has admitted that PROZAC, its cash cow for 15 years increases the risk of suicide in some people. Approximately 1 in 100 non suicidal people will develop severe side effects that may lead to suicide attempts. One study estimates 50,000 sucessful suicide attempts were probably attributable to Prozac. By a strange coincidence, Prozac is ready to go generic, and Eli Lilly has already manufactured its replacement, R-fluoxetine which Eli Lilly is marketing by stressing that it does not increase the risk of suicide.
