Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments I believe that THE INDIVIDUAL RIGHT AND RESPONSIBILITY is mine and I should be able to get the OVER THE COUNTER PRODUCT rather than pay the ridiculous HIGH PRICE when it's been proven that the drug industry has such extraordinary profit. I believe that if I OVER-DOSE or MIS-USE the product, I should NOT BE ABLE TO SUE THE SUPPLIER. In this way, I take responsibility for MY USE AND ANY MIS-USE, but since I WOULD NOT DO THIS, I save the money. I DO NOT THINK THE HIGH COST OF DRUGS IS RIGHT. So many people NEED HELP, but they don't have the money TO HELP THEM BUY THESE VITAL DRUGS. Why should they live in pain or discomfort just because the US Drug Industry wants to make a huge profit. The Drug Industry tries to tell us they have high R&D costs...but that's not the truth. There are costs but they keep doing this R&D over and over...often just to justify the HIGH COST. They also are not 'diligent' and 'efficient'...they want to keep their 'jobs', so why FIND A SOLUTION OR CURE, when they get paid to 'search'. Obviously if one is paid to always 'search' or 'research', they will NEVER FIND - because then the 'case is closed', and are they out of work? That's why I do not trust this system. For me, I rarely use ANY DRUGS - I DO NOT EVEN USE ASPIRIN. I use only vitamins - eat right - exercise, and I'm a grandmother...healthy, so I have little need for anything over the country and haven't had a prescription in years. Nevertheless, I speak for THE PUBLIC who does need it and I DO SEE MANY WHO NEED GOING WITHOUT. This is why I'm responding - because MORE THAN ANYTHING, I DO NOT LIKE SEEING PEOPLE SUFFER.
