Spent a bit more time on the comments having downloaded them all (if anyone wants a copy PM me your email adr -- I assume it's public info and ok to reproduce - if you know otherwise let me know).
69 COMMENTS TOTAL
3 MISSING COMMENTS - 1 is DUPLICATE - 2 are MYSTERIOUSLY NOT POSTED. God knows what they are!
Of the 69 comments
- A few are duplicates -- seems like people copied each others' messages at times both on the pro and con side.
- Around 22 of 69 are
Either against Sched. 4,asking for a tighter schedule, 2 or 3.
A bunch are arguing combo with Phen could pose additional risks.
Asking for delay.
Citing that "3%" #$%$ that it's not worth the risk
- A couple are neutral - saying people should do yoga instead etc.
- Around 44 are supportive of DEA's schedule 4, asking for expedited approval, waiver of wait period.
The 44 comments in support of DEA should take the DEA something like 2 days to respond to. They likely will respond to the whole lot one response saying thanks for your comment showing support for the proposed rule.
The opposing comments can be categorized to
- Around 8 are raising phen combo issue
- A couple asking for REMS
- Around 3 asking for delay
- I haven't gone through the attachments yet but I know Mansbach's babble for example which is in support of Sched 4 anyway after throwing a monkey wrench with silly arguments. I hope DEA doesn't have to respond to every point he makes.
It would have been a huge help to the DEA if Arena/Eisai were on standby last day, have a scientist review the latest comment, and posted their rebuttal. I guess they underestimated the cockroaches.
REMS is not DEA's job. I don't see the combo with phen an issue b/c phen is already scheduled.
Why didn't many of these concerned people post their names? Because they were concerned people would find out they work for Hedge Fund X?
It is very obvious looking at the negative comments that a lot of them are just ask
Thanks Reza for a well written post. I agree with you and also with Jerry that "you should write article and exposed the BS the DEA is try to pull about the delayed because comments 44 of them do not need to be answered and the 22 are BS". The only reason these 22 negative comments were posted is to delay Belviq Launch by delaying the DEA schedule finalization.
I don't care what other clowns say but,,thanks again Reza for your work and support for ARNA.
Let's just say if DEA is not bought out and they're too lazy to do their job and just assign one agent to work on ARNA's scheduling/comment one comment a day it would still be done by now.
Sentiment: Strong Buy

wow, 11 rec's and no comments :) thanks anyway. I heard Cramer bashed the stock. I always consider that a positive. Also the bashers seem to be going out of their way to scare some retails off their shares. Hedgies know the bombshell is going to be dropped on them when Belviq sells. Cramer can bash all he wants. DEA can't hold this up forever. I'm hanging on to my shares.
I am starting to wonder if they can. lol It just seems that we keep drifting down as I am sure some people have moved on. The lower we go, the less the pop when (and starting to wonder if JOKE) the DEA finally responds.
Candidly and respectfully speaking.... I'm simply tired of the waiting and disillusioned by the apparent negligence by the DEA. The drug makes sense. It's novel. It will lead to new combos and new indications. Best to all longs and screw the shorts!
