"Pfizer Says It's in Talks With FDA on Viagra Link to Blindness"...Bloomberg...it's rare, but it occurs.
Why do Americans jump on the bandwagon (conveniently driven by the big pharmaceutical companies) like lemmings? Anyone ever heard of 'grin and bear it'? Take 2 tylenol and call me in the morning? Yeah, arthritis is painful, but the painkilling alternative could be worse. And impotence is a drag, but I wouldn't want to go blind trying to overcome it (if I were a guy...of course with this perspective, it's a good explanation of why I'm not a guy).
I am so disappointed that so many Americans completely buy into what the pharmas are selling...even though it can kill,blind or otherwise disable them. Of course there are therapeutic drugs that help people, but I'm more concerned about the seemingly casual use of a prescription drug because "it was on TV." I know most doctors agree with me on this.
To quote a well-known California lawyer, it's an outrage.
