On the final day of the Sara Carlin 'Death by Paxil' inquest, Oakville MP, Terence Young testified that patients must be educated about the dangerous side effects of drugs and the possibility of using alternate non-drug treatments.
Lawyer Teresa Walsh, representing Paxil's makers, GlaxoSmithKline, queried Young on Sara Carlin's alcohol consumption two years before taking Paxil.
Young balked at the questions, refusing to answer them and noting by Grade 10 alcohol use is widespread.
"It's irrelevant. You're planting the earworm (idea) that it's the alcohol, everything but the Paxil," replied Young.
