The FDA knows everything that Bero published is true. In fact as Rosenheck has shown, when the FDA concludes that sponsor studies are worthless they remain silent when sponsors publish these bogus results with false claims of efficacy. [Rosenheck, International Journal of Law and Psychiatry 28 (2005) 467–483] .

There is no excuse for this silence which has resulted in untold death disabilty and of course, profits.

No competing interests declared.
