This information on Prozac was been forwarded to me by my friend, Juli Lawrence (juli@ect.org), who found it at Disinformation, (http://www.disinfo.com/prop/narco/prop_narco_prozac.html).

Prozac, the drug that delivers happiness to one and all, propelled to the top of the drug charts and has held that top position for many years. The most widely prescribed antidepressant made by that very happy company Eli Lilly, Prozac has spawned odes, poems, Pez candy dispensers, and created an army of really, really happy people. Prozac has taken on mythic proportions in our culture. Is there adark underbelly to Prozac? If there is one, it's hard to find, but we did come up with a few dissensions. C'mon, get happy!!!
