I sure my concern is not going to where it needs to go, but I'll continue anyway.
I'm amazed at the meticulous way you folks seem to protect us, the consumers. You pulled another drug from the market, bextra. You said it seemed to cause an increase risk of heart attack and stroke. Many other drugs have been 'pulled' that have helped millions and millions of people but have had adverse effects on a small percentage of the population (phen-phen was saving my life years ago but no longer)!
Hypocrites!!!!!! Doesn't alcohol and tobacco increase the risk of heart attacks, strokes, cancer, lung problems and death? If you are so concerned about the consumers, why not pull those 'drugs'? I know, you will say they don't come under your jurisdiction of 'drug control' so it's out of your hands - - Hypocrites!!!!! I feel you folks need to step back and re-consider your actions. I also feel this little e-mail will hardly be looked at and quickly thrown in the trash, and madness goes on and on and on!
