Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments Dear Sir or Ms.: I am a user of the cholesteroa lowering drug, ZOCOR. It has been very beneficial to me. I am concerned that cholesterol drugs may become available over-the counter. Every six months, I have my blood tested to check on the liver lipids and cholesterol levels. Since the drugs can cause liver problems, this test is essential. I am concerned that many, perhaps most people buying thses drugs OTC will not know or wil ignore the warnings about the semi-annual blood testing. Liver problems are serious as you know. Pleas keep this group of drugs in the arena of perscription drugs, rather than O.T.C. Thank you for this opportunity to communicate with this panel. John Haass
