25. Blame the user and not the maker? Is that what you are saying?
Edited on Sun Jan-03-10 10:06 PM by KoKo
So many drugs are pushed out there in the past few years without adequate testing. Look at what Merck and Pfizer have done pushing drugs too soon.

We have worked in and with the pharma industry for over 30 years. We know that the relaxation of testing has gone on just like Bank De-regulation has gone on over the past 20 years. We know the industry. Not everyone understands side effects from reading the package inserts and many don't bother to read feeling their doctor and drug companies would never give them anything that wasn't "safe." Also some folks are not as quick to notice side effects as other more sensitives are and they end up in an emergency room or dead before they realize what's going on.
