    An interesting SAMPLE of 15 drugs that can cause death...from article OPPOSING them !!!

    After reading this article, it is hard to imagine that Omontys will not be fully restored to the market:

    In the pharmaceutical industry’s rush to get drugs to market, safety usually comes last. Long studies to truly assess a drug’s risks just delay profits after all — and if problems do emerge after medication hits the market, settlements are usually less than profits. Remember, Vioxx still made money.

    I obtained the following information from AlterNet / ByMartha Rosenberg

    The following drugs are so plagued with safety problems, it is a wonder they’re on the market at all. It’s a testament to Big Pharma’s greed and our poor regulatory processes that they are even sold:

    Lipitor and Crestor
    Yaz and Yasmin (drospirenone)
    NOTE...The FDA recently updated the label for contraceptives containing drospirenone to include warnings for stopping use prior to and after surgery, and to warn that contraceptives with drospirenone may have a higher risk of dangerous blood clots.

    Lyrica, Topomax
    NOTE--- has been associated with a statistically significant increase in suicidality,[35] and "suicidal thoughts or actions" is now listed as one of the possible side effects of the drug "in a very small number of people, about 1 in 500...VS. OMONTYS 3/25000 PATIENTS (YES I know not all actually committed suicide)


    Humira, Prolia
    NOTE---Prolia (Amgen's) has .2% fatality rate (10 X Omontys)...Hypersensitivity
    Clinically significant hypersensitivity including anaphylaxis has been reported with Prolia...LABEL WARNING...If an anaphylactic or other clinically significant allergic reaction occurs, initiate appropriate therapy and discontinue further use of Prolia.

    TNF Blockers
    Prempro and Premarin
