whats right

Image result for memantine is now generic
ive written about namenda before
the company that makes the brand tried to stop making it
so they could promote the namenda xr to all the docs
so when namenda when generic all the patients would be
on namenda xr
a 'new' drug with a longer patent time

the courts jumped in
gotta make the namenda and sell it

finally the generic is officially here

now here is why that company was fighting so hard
$4,000 per patient was what they were after

namenda is added to alzheimers patients regimen
as they start that decline downwards
that turning point of no return

to have a company take advantage of those families

the generic form of namenda at costco is
for 90 pills

the branded form of namenda at costco is
for 90 pills

this is whats wrong with our healthcare system

Image result for tom brady
now about tom
brady that is
lesson learned

here is how it should have all went down

were you involved with deflating the balls in any way
yes i was

thats all he would have had to say
we all understand
we all would forgive
pay the price
move on

dug a little hole didnt he

  1. Thank you for posting about big pharma! My complaint, too, is advertising; why are we one of the only countries that allows advertising of prescription medicine? And does big pharma need the $$$ for research, as they say, or is it all going to the aforementioned advertising?
