    There are so many drugs on the market that cause so many MORE problems – for which there are other drugs to “counter act” the horrible side effects of each new one… Where does it stop? We are a nation of drug addicts because our system is so dependent on pharmaceutical contributions to candidates that will further the profits of their employers without consideration of the long term affects of the drugs they push on society. Our children are becoming drug addicts before they reach puberty, and society wonders why! Pharmaceutical companies are too powerful in politics, and they get these drugs passed by the FDA before they have been properly and completely tested for long term affects.
    while I realize there are many people “waiting” for their release as “hope” for their ailment, there are many more who have taken these drugs whose lives have been ruined because their doctor put them on a “new” drug being pushed by sales reps as “wonder fix” for everything imaginable. “WE are the test subjects for them, and that is causing more and newer problems in this country. I refuse to be a “guinea pig” for the drug pushers. Their drugs only treat “symptoms” they don’t even think about looking for root causes of the diseases. It certainly gives one reason to pause. How many of the drugs we have taken ourselves could have led to the increasingly alarming number of children “diagnosed” with ADD/ADHD? It’s too easy to prescribe a pill to make the doctors job easier and faster! And then the doctor pulls a months supply out of the “sample” box and hand them out like candy. “Trick or Treat” what’s in the bag? Often, a lot more than we bargained for when we trusted both our doctor and the magic pills the pharma companies are treating us with.

      I am 60 years old and have been taking Nexium, Colchicine for over 10 years for gout and damaged esophagus vlave that leaks stomach contents when I lie flat or bend over. Was put on Cipro, Tamsulosin for prostate infection and BPH. I have now got chronic diareha, get pnemonia easily, bone and joint fractures and extreme pain, liver at 55% capacity, and heart pulpitaions. Got off the Nexium and Colchicine and encountered the worst acid rebound attack that put me in shock and into the ER. Spent 2 weeks recovering the worst withdrawl effects that all those drugs did to me. Doc says I will have a 20% chance of recovering for the next year due to teh damage done. We are all doomed by this drug to death era that is upon us.
