Confessions of an Rx Drug Pusher God's
Call to Loving Arms by Gwen Olsen
Gwen Olsen spent fifteen years as a sales rep
in the pharmaceutical industry working for health care giants including
Johnson & Johnson, Syntex Labs, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Abbott Laboratories
and Forest Laboratories. On December 2, 2004, Gwen Olsen’s niece Megan
committed suicide by setting herself on fire—and ended her tortured life as
a victim of the adverse effects of prescription drugs. Olsen’s poignant
autobiographical journey through the darkness of mental illness and the
catastrophic consequences that lurk in medicine cabinets around the country
offers an honest glimpse into alarming statistics and a health care system
ranked last among nineteen industrialized nations worldwide.
As a former sales representative in the
pharmaceutical industry for several years, Olsen learned firsthand how an
unprecedented number of lethal drugs are unleashed in the United States
market, but her most heartrending education into the dangers of
antidepressants would come as a victim and ultimately, as a survivor.
Rigorously researched and documented, Confessions of an Rx Drug Pusher is a
moving human drama that shares one woman’s unforgettable journey of faith,
forgiveness, and healing.
It is easy
to disregard prescription drug deaths, medical errors, and U.S. health care
crisis statistics as just numbers. However, they are not. In a well researched,
impeccably documented, finely written manner Gwen Olsen has given us account of
the gripping details of real people hurt by the failures of modern health care.
A former pharmaceutical representative herself, the information is as credible
as it is compelling. It is vital for those currently taking prescription
medication to read and understand this book. Dr.
