Am I right in saying that as far as overall monetary value is concerned Big Pharma have been hit with paying out the most in law suits out of any industry?

(Not with regards to Covid specifically, just generally in normal running.)

Hard to say overall, but I did some research and ‘Big Pharma’ doesn’t dominate the list.

It’s a heavily regulated industry.

I’m not convinced by the accusations that anti-depressants given to sufferers of depression increased the likelihood that they would commit suicide. The most you could say is that the drug didn’t work for those individuals.

Interesting no one ever sues the arms industry.

I had a client once who had been prescribed a drug called Moclobemide, they became psychotic and violent , fortunately the state didn't persist and when recovered from the psychosis refused to take any more of the drug. Turned out the consultant who prescribed the drug was retained by a big swiss pharmaceutical who they had been doing research for prior to taking up their post in the NHS. Dodgy as anything. The head pharmacist at the local psychiatric hospital was livid but the whole episode was hurredly swept under the carpet and i suspect the consultants move on from the post shortly afterwards may have partly been precipitated by it. Mind you her being a workplace sex pest and racking up a few complaints from almost any man who found themselves alone with her cant have helped.

If you do 'ANY' research into big pharma then you have to come across the strong links between being prescribed anti-depressants & death by suicide.

What really shook me to my core is the fact that your GP isn't really qualified to diagnose mental ilness, let alone prescribe a drug to treat it !

Asking for a referral would make sense.

Any decent GP will refer you, not try to diagnose you. They know they're almost certainly not experienced enough in that area to try it.
