New Analysis of Paxil Study Says Drug is Unsafe for Teens

An article in the New York Times reported that a medical journal’s new analysis of a study done years ago by GlaxoSmithKline that concluded Paxil was safe and effective for teenagers was incorrect. An analysis of the same data used in the original study concluded just the opposite, that Paxil was not safe for use by teenagers. However, the article implies that there may have been bias in their findings since the study was done by a team of doctors who were very critical of the original study and one doctor who was a paid expert witness in lawsuits against GSK.
