    Safety of Epogen

    According to Alpha Extreme Epogen has a much better safety profile than Omontys. I am going to quote a couple different aboutlawsuitsdotcom articles for you to decide how much safer Epogen is:

    "Other scandals surrounding the anemia drug involve Amgen offering false information regarding the safety of the drug. The company is reported to continue the use of lobbyists in congress to pressure lawmakers and the FDA to overlook claims of potential severe side effects, such as an increased risk of CANCER and STROKE."

    "After studies showed that the side effects of Aranesp, Epogen and Procrit included increased CANCER and STROKE RISK and may have been COSTING LIVES, the FDA issued a public health advisory in 2007, warning that they could increase the risk of death at higher doses. The warning to the public was accompanied by the requirement that all three drugs carry a “black box” warning, which is the most stringent warning the FDA can require a drug to carry."

    Now, I am far from an Einstein, but, is a stroke or cancer curable by a shot of epinephrine?
