I guess we'll have to agree to disagree. Your points are reasonable leo. Does the FDA take bribes, yeah maybe they do - but then thats just another example of the flaws in the fda. In your two examples, I believe a lawsuit against the manufacturers is completely reasonable - the difference there is that there isnt a governing body testing these products extensively prior to their release - so the blame lies solely with the manufacturer. Not true of prescription drugs.

If I thought that a lawsuit promised any real value to those suffering from depression and the associated withdrawls then I would sign up. But it wont. In fact, if a lawsuit succeeded, and effexor were pulled off the shelves then I think we might see more people on the side of having it re-released than on the side of keeping it gone. Go through all the data on this med and one thing is clear above all else, it works - and it works better than most of the others time and time again .
I am a strong supporter of litigation of this kind when it truly is a means to solve a problem. I dont believe we have that situation here. You do. Thats the beauty of debate.

I think that one way or the other, all this discussion is going to prompt one of these parties to do something. Too bad we'll probably never know about it.

Take care leo.
