**WARNING! Avandia and other prescriptions are hazardous to your health, and only should be prescribed and dispensed under the supervision of people who went to a collective of 15+ years of college and who KNOWS what the hell they are doing. This is because Rx drugs are DANGEROUS and require KNOWLEDGE to use effectively****
Duh right? Obviously not.
So Avandia is being tied to causing MI’s and related deaths in their patients. Lets look at some facts shall we. I bet the media isnt picking up on these:
Yeah, does anyone else see something wrong with believing a study that was funded by the COMPETITORS of GSK? Im sure Dr. Nissen doesnt get ANYTHING from these companies. No sir. He probably doesnt get to use their houses in the Bahamas on their corporate jets and eat with the offical Pfizer credit card. Charity my ass.
Yes, Dr. Nissen, I’m talking about you. You and your flawed ‘study’ is causing me, my colleagues, and the doctors (who actually work and see patients) hours upon hours of time explaining to people why your study is no cause for alarm and they should NOT stop their Avandia without talking with someone with a clue (their doctor). You should be ashamed for causing so much useless and pointless panic over something that is (in the scope of things) retarded and unwarranted. I hope someone tears your ‘study’ a new asshole and points out the glaring flaws. I know you probably dont work for a living actually helping people, so i’ll give you a little pointer: Prescription drugs are dangerous, henceforth why doctors can only write them, and I can only dispense them. I know this is a foreign concept to you, but think about it next time you’re on that jet getting lapdances from the Lilly reps.
In short, Americans want to listen to the media, who obviously know a lot more about medicine than their Pharmacist, their Doctor, or Nurse. I say if they dont want to take Avandia, thats fine, they can die an early death. Thin the herd a bit. Sometimes we need to take the warning stickers off of things and let nature run its course.
Sorry this isnt more rantilicious. I’m gearing up for the NPI cutover clusterfuck that I know is going to drive me to an early grave tomorrow.
