1 At least links to all the ones with free full-text. Which are about half of those available for Savella. And nothing when compared with the all-except-one count for Brintellix. Hiding anything Forest? Not really. I was lucky to find one or two clinical trials for most other meds. And the one about long-term use being a statistical deadheat was available.

Fetzima, and all other drug names on this page and used throughout the site, are the trademarks of someone else. Fetzima’s PI Sheet will probably have the name of the manufacturer and trademark owner (they’re not always the same company) at or near the very bottom. Or ask Google who the owner is. The way pharmaceutical companies buy each other and swap products like Monopoly™ real estate, the ownership of the trademark may have changed without my noticing. It may of changed hands by the time you finished reading this article.
