OOPS, did they forget to mention that they also manufacture the antidepressants Lexapro/Cipralex and Cipramil/Celexa? This campaign is targeting most of the population, from students to the elderly and everyone in between.
So what’s next for Lundbeck in Ireland? Maybe a “Mind your toddler” or a “Mind your unborn baby” campaign.
Did I already mention the Lundbeck corruption, deceit, fraud, false advertising, hidden advertising and their admission that their drugs can cause “self-harm and harm to others”?
Lately, more and more coroners are trying to get investigations into this drug and on top of that there is an appeal to the courts involving Lundbeck’s behaviour with the acquisition of drugs used to treat patent ductus arteriousus (PDA), a heart condition affecting premature babies. In an internal e-mail the vice president of lundbeck said “We can price these almost anywhere we want given the product profiles”. His plan was to increase the price from $78 to $1,500 Nice Company?
Gaybo launches Lundbeck’s campaign…Link.
Of course there are the usual doctors and psychiatrists promoting their leaflets and Gaybo is not the first “Irish Celeb” to speak at one of their launches, but I would have to warn any prospective spokesperson to Google this drug company before linking their name to Lundbeck and just like starting on their medication, make an informed choice! The “mind yourself in later life” campaign didn’t mention these two Irish guys, Link or Link or the 78 year old Robert Raines who shot and killed himself and his wife Elsie after 5 days on Cipramil/Celexa…no?
I could go on about the doctors and psychiatrists and conflict of interest’s here but don’t have the time at the moment as we are off to Denmark to find out for ourselves. Maybe our meeting with Lundbeck will explain how Cipramil and Lexapro can or cannot cause suicide and/or homicide!
Mind yourself…Student leaflet.
Mind yourself…At work.
Anxiety in everyday life.
Mind yourself…Keep on track.
Mind yourself…Overcoming depression.
Then there is Lundbeck’s “Lean on me”.
Mind yourself… Depression in later life

A friend sent me this interesting piece in the Irish Times today regarding psychiatry and it’s close relationship with the pharmaceutical industry… Link.
