For a commercial purpose, pharmaseutical companies interven with psychiatric diagnoses. Takahiro Tozaki, a well-known victim of organized stalking crime, recently updated his thesis in his website “Nihongo dewa shirasarenai seishin-igaku no uso” (The deception of psychiatry which is never reported in Japanese language). He analyzes the commercial aspect of the secret crime of organized stalking, citing a renowned American medical doctor, Marcia Angell’s work, “Once upon a time, drug companies promote drugs to treat diseases. Now it is often the opposite. They promote diseases to fit their drugs.” (Tozaki, 2009; Angell, 2004) According to Angell’s research, Eli Lily, an international pharmaseutical corporation, made up new name, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, for a women’s stressful state prior to menstrual. Their purpose was to promote the sale of Prozac, anti-depression medicine. The company merely changed the color of the pill, put the new name, Sarafem, instead of Prozac, and sold it for Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder with raised price. (Angell, 2004)
