Former director of the firm Eli Lilly Sweden, Virapen John wrote in his seventy-fourth year professional confession motivated by his anxiety attacks :
“Years sometimes in the early hours of the day ghostly silhouettes appear in my dream, Written by-yl en préambule. They beat their heads against the wall or hack the arms and throat razor bumps. I now realized that I had indirectly contributed to death of people whose shadows haunt me.
I obviously killed person directly, but today I can not help but feel partly responsible for these deaths. J'ai été a tool, an executive, but willing, the hands of the industry. […] J’ai été certes manipulé, but without asking questions. I sold my soul to the devil.”
In 1986, for the launch of fluoxetine Eli Lily, Golden molecule called Prozac to be until the patent expires in 2001 the most prescribed antidepressant in the world, John Virapen will commit what haunts the early morning : have helped to promote a drug that he knew already-- suicidal impact (for real side effects of psychotropic, see the website of independent health monitoring David Healy, researcher at the University of Cardiff RxiSK.org) whose superiority over placebo is still not established 2014.

I am sorry for the short responses, but I am currently recovering from open heart surgery. Regarding my pension, I receive a pension only from Sweden and it is called OLD AGE PENSION. Check with the tax people to get the numbers. Pls. inform your people that what I did was not for the sake of money.
WHAT ROYALTIES. My books have not made enough money to pay for the paper it was printed on, let alone royalties.
