(Glaxo)SmithKline's history with psych drugs
Researching modern studies of and treatment of schizophrenia, I came across this bit of psychology drug history. Keep in mind I am not being critical here, because the drug in this story saved lives and minds when used correctly. Why I am pointing this out is to say that (G)SK was involved in manufacturing and marketing psychotropic medications from the git-go. They seem to be the ones who started the whole thing. AND throughout the history of psychopharma, they seem to be unhesitant to market a drug for whatever reason as long as it would make a profit.
(Glaxo) is in parentheses for identification because Smith Kline at times had other partners and the name was not always Glaxo Smith Kline.
