    Experts comment on FDA incompetence

    "ANY diabetic can use exenatide if they want to use it"

    The subject I posted is Bydureon - a much different drug( and why the FDA is dealing with it as a new drug)
    Byduron advantages are many above Byetta,mainly the NAUSEA is MUCH less because of the dosing- this was one of the big reasons Byetta was never a blockbuster.
    The numbers that will take Bydureon will be much larger because of the next big reason that the stall will affect so many- COMPLIANCE- compliance among diabetics is well known to be poor,and many on Byetta would often not take a second shot and the drugs effects would falter.Its not stupid that the reasons that this stall will affect so many is because it will be prescribed to a far larger diabetic population.
