Title seen in NY Times paper: F.D.A. Weighs Training to Dispense Narcotics
Wow, shouldn't they have at least a primer? That much study, and there is not even a hint of this?
WHAT? DOCTORS DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DISPENSING? DOCTORS CAN'T READ WARNINGS? DOCTOR OFFICES CANT MAKE QUICK CALLS??
PATIENTS ARE JUST LETTING THERE INTERNIST/FAMILY PRACTICIONER GIVE SCRIPS THAT SHOULD BE DONE BY SPECIALISTS????
MONEY AND KICKBACKS AND BRIBES - OH MY!!!!
Hmmm - I guess this is just like saying that a study of 500 people for two weeks is acceptable for seeing if a drug designed for one physiological problem (epilepsy) is acceptable for using it as it's side effect (mood stability) for bi-polar disorder (depakote).
The place I used to be able to go to, to find this info, is no longer available. I guess it required too much of the drug companies kick backs for the FDA to keep that site up!!!!
oh well, so much for a democracy allowing for complete, full, true self education...
SHOULD HAVE LEARNED WHAT A LIE THIS IS WHEN COMPANIES GET PISSY WHEN YOU KNOW THE LAWS AND DON'T LET THEM RUN OVER YOU....
AGAIN, SCREW THIS PARADIGM. IT'S NOT EVEN TRUELY WHAT THE CONSTITUION ALLOWS FOR AND DEFINES AS OUR SYSTEM....
Please, everyone. Go out and educate yourselves!!!!!
