    Pharmacist knew nothing of Vasepa and no wholsesaler available.

    Those of you who know me from the MB know that I am long on AMRN. I called the pharmacist in my medical office building to buy a few stock bottles of Vasepa (actually want to use it off-label for some painful, arthritic joints in my thumbs resulting from an auto accident 10 years ago - you kniow, the inflammation issue). I was shocked to hear that he was totally unfamiliar with it. He checked for it and found that his company's wholesaler - McKesson - wasn't stocking it. He said he would check into it and an hour later told me that McKesson was NOT dealing with Amarin, was not stocking Vasepa and had no plans to do so. What i going on?? Is this a Maryland thing? I e-mailed Amarin about this just a few minutes ago and obviously have not heard back yet. Any other physicians, pharmacists - or others - having any similar experiences? This is certainly not good a month after launch. zbd
