    Equal treatment by the FDA?

    Just goes to show you the power of the big drug
    co's.

    <<The FDA stopped short of telling doctors not to
    prescribe to those men, just that they need to carefully
    consider who can tolerate the powerful little blue pill.
    But the government made manufacturer Pfizer Inc.
    (NYSE:PFE - news) add the more explicit warnings to
    Viagra's label even as it confirmed that 130 Americans who
    took Viagra have died since the drug began selling
    last spring, the majority from heart
    attacks.

    There's no proof Viagra caused the deaths, the FDA
    stressed. Heart disease kills hundreds of Americans daily,
    and Pfizer estimates that 6 million prescriptions
    have been filled since April and that 3 million
    Americans use it.>>
