    I am an M.D., I am long, and this number is PATHETIC!

    I am VERY long ARNA (in other words way too many shares percentage-wise in my portfolio), and I know it's taboo for anyone to say something negative (therefore I will be relentless attacked as a paid basher). I am also an M.D. (board certified) and have been accused on this board of not being an M.D. Oh well, what can you do?
    But I am very disappointed with these numbers. 1800 scripts in a week, in my opinion is pathetic! Why, I could almost count on this board the M.D.'s (including myself) who have written prescriptions and the patients on this board who say they are going to demand the prescription from their doctors, and it amounts to more than 1800. AND THE DRUG IS FREE for now. Terrible, terrible number! it means that virtually no M.D.'s are writing prescription for their patients. 10,000 targeted physicians and you can get more precriptions counted just from longs on this board who own the stock. I saw one doctor who's long on the board and said he wrote for 160 scripts. So he accounted for almost 10% of that number. I am incredibly disappointed. A horrible number that better improve DRAMATICALLY. Call me a basher, call me a fraud (not an M.D.), but in truth I want this drug to be the next blockbuster. 1800 scripts is their big launch (FOR A FREE DRUG)! Absolutely pathetic!
