Confessions of a Rx Drug Pusher

This is a video podcast by Gwen Owen, former pharmaceutical representative, who left the industry in 2000, and now exposes the pharmaceutical industry’s agenda of Deceive, Drug Maintenance (for life) and Symptoms Management. In this broadcast, she addresses specifically their approach with anti-depressants and anti-psychotic drugs which are designed to make patients customers for life, and do indeed make it almost impossible for patients to withdraw, titrate and stop using the drugs.

Confessions of a RX Drug Pusher

Gwen Olsen spent 15 years as a sales rep in the pharmaceutical industry working for health care giants. When her niece committed suicide after being put on a changing regimen of anti-depressants and antipsychotics, and from her own experience of anti-depressants, she began re-evaluating the drugs she was promoting and pushing.

The FDA has stated that the adverse effects reported on Medwatch are actually 1 to 10 times that of those reported. Suicidal ideation was not listed as a risk factor on the drug information sheet for Seroquel in 2013 and 2014. After my son’s suicide in 2014, I sent a Medwatch report from 2008 showing statistics for suicide attempts and suicides while on Seroquel and its generic form to the psychiatrist who prescribed it. In 2015, risk of suicide ideation and suicide was put on the drug label. This is how the drug industry works to protect its interests only.

When a psychiatrist tells you that your loved one with schizophrenia must be on anti-psychotic drugs for life, they are representing what they have been told by the drug industry whose only agenda is medicine maintenance – profit maintenance.


Drug Industry plus Congress Fuels Opioid Addiction

Please watch this CBS 60 Minutes documentary on whistleblower, former DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) Agent and Executive Chief of Office of Diversion Control, Joe Rannazzisi’s, findings about the PHARMA distributors behind the illicit traffic of narcotic pain killers in small mid-west and Eastern communities throughout the United States.


Whistleblower Joe Rannazzisi says drug distributors pumped opioids into U.S. communities — knowing that people were dying — and says industry lobbyists and Congress derailed the DEA’s efforts to stop it. Opioid addiction has become a national health crisis. How does President Trump respond to this crisis? He nominated Tom Marino, ex-DEA Lawyer, who wrote the bill derailing the enforcement division of DEA responsible for monitoring the Pharmaceutical industry’s drug distribution practices, as the Drug Czar for the federal government.

Update: President Trump announced Tuesday that his nominee for drug czar, Rep. Tom Marino, has withdrawn his name from consideration for the position.

In the midst of the worst drug epidemic in American history, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s ability to keep addictive opioids off U.S. streets was derailed — that according to Joe Rannazzisi, one of the most important whistleblowers ever interviewed by 60 Minutes. Rannazzisi ran the DEA’s Office of Diversion Control, the division that regulates and investigates the pharmaceutical industry. Now in a joint investigation by 60 Minutes and The Washington Post, Rannazzisi tells the inside story of how, he says, the opioid crisis was allowed to spread — aided by Congress, lobbyists, and a drug distribution industry that shipped, almost unchecked, hundreds of millions of pills to rogue pharmacies and pain clinics providing the rocket fuel for a crisis that, over the last two decades, has claimed 200,000 lives.

If you still have a deep-rooted belief in the pharmaceutical industry having your best interests in mind, please watch this ’60 Minutes’ documentary exposing the tremendous amount of influence the drug industry has in Congress which allows the drug industry to do what it wants, in the interest of profits alone. Antipsychotic drugs, the second most expensive drugs on the market, are a step away from the corruption exposed over illicit Opioid distribution by the drug industry.
