Little Karla was an innocent young soul, a unique individual, a
"Child of the Universe no Less than the Trees and the Stars."
She is now just a 'statistic' alongside very many others.
Kara had "a right to be here."

GLAXOSMITHKLINE - WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?
THIS IS WHAT YOU DID:
Extract of correspondence from
Professor David Healy
to the UK regulatory body,
"...Reports on these trials list patients who have committed suicide, and list those patients as being of a certain age and as having committed suicide at a certain point during the trial, when the patient in question has a very different age and the event in question happened at a completely different point during the trial".
"Miscoding of suicidal act as emotional lability."
" Lilly have resorted to treatment non-response and a range of other headings to code what happened."
"...records on Prozac, Seroxat/Paxil and Lustral/Zoloft, you will find cases of homicidality coded as nausea for instance."
"Discontinuation of patients from studies for primary adverse effects such as nausea when in fact there has been a suicidal act;"
"But it is also worth adding specifically that this has been
a feature of
all trials of Zoloft / Lustral,
Seroxat / Paxil and Prozac
as far as I can make out... "
