Personal Update Monday:
This week I went on a journey for information about off lable uses in FDA drugs. When can you sue doctors who make up strange lies on safety? It starts with this conversation I had on Facebook.
Me: “In other news, never belive a doctor when they say a medication does NOT cause weight gain. I gained eight pounds in one week when my doctor put me on a new medication. Glad I noticed so that I could complain. I may have only noticed when it was too late.”
My friend Rob: “Identify with this. We’ve learned to always read the printed information sheets we get from the pharmacist and will sometimes research the recommended treatments ourselves.”
Me: Yea, always read the net yourself. I caught the error in the first week, and can hit the gym ten more hours. Others may not be that lucky.”
I guess the part that I find disturbing about this is I specificly asked my doctor if this was an issue, and she had said “No.” So there is an assumption that I am so stupid I won’t figure it out. Do all doctors think they are God, and need not warn their clients of danger? This drug turns out to be increadibly filled with dangers for users, and is part of class action lawsuits making men grow breasts. It also makes people have lifelong involuntary leg twitching, internal bleeding, and worse things happen. The FDA does not ban it. Yet drug companies give doctors gifts, free dinners, and other kickbacks to perscribe this scumb. If you ask about the dangers of a drug and nothing is said, but it is a really bad drug what kind of lawsuit can you file? Few legal protections are real for this problem.
