I've posted a copy paste of the email twice and yahoo seems not to like it since it's been deleted. one last try. Your Savings Can Keep Going
We've extended the expiration date for the voucher and savings card to March 31, 2015. That means you can keep using your current card until you receive a new card in the mail.
trust but verify. And the discount program has been extended into 2015 per an email from the BELIEVE program
I received an email from the Believe program saying ALL discounts will be extended into 2015. Use the old card and if a problem a phone number for the supplier to call for verification. New cards will be sent.
just what is your buyout opinion based on? a 800% + premium to current price is a wild guess. But perhaps guess is the operant word.
given personal observations the only answer may be putting lorcaserin in the drinking water!
Thanks for your updates and congratulations to your wife on her new life. Having three different people in my life on this medication and being able to confirm your wife's results I am so excited about not only the weight loss health implications but also the psycho-social benefits that accompany image and self worth. Best to you boyh.
I have reported that my sons mother in law had to talk her doctor's PA into prescribing Belviq after the doctor himself wanted to send her for bariatric surgery instead. This was in NY. She also has a home in New Mexico. I heard from her today as I asked her to update me periodically. Her doctor in NM wouldn't prescribe it so she found a new PMD. She was reluctant but willing. She has been on Belviq for 11 weeks and has now lost 26 lbs. Her total cholesterol which bounced over and under 200 while on a statin is now 154. Surprisingly though her dr. wants her to remain on the cholesterol medication. She is well rested. Needed to stop an antidepressant to go on Belviq and now is wondering why she was ever on it. She doesn't feel she needs it at all. Her NM doctor now says she's thinking of taking the medicine herself and the CVS she gets her meds from (in New Mexico) says they are getting more requests and are now stocking it. Finally, she has sent her latest labs to the NY Physician who wanted to send her for bariatric surgery instead and has an appointment with him when she returns to NY (Buffalo). She wants to let him know how wrong he was and encourage him to start recommending Belviq instead. All good!
will be taken down to the $4s. Corruption knows no bounds when it comes to government and BP.
look at the volume. ARNA being forced down by those who want you spooked by market action. Big drop on average volume while the NSDAQ is crushed on massive volume suggests covering under the quise of panic. Buy more if you the cash. Take a walk and ignore the downward pressure.
excellent. I too spoke with my PMD yesterday about an unrelated matter. Before I got off the phone with him I told him my sig other has now lost 40 lbs, (I report progress here periodically). At my last visit with him he said he was writing more scripts since he indicated based on her experience he would prescribe more. NOW, he replied, that it was his drug of choice for weight reduction. Patients come in asking for other weight loss medications and now he directs them to Belviq. He loves the drug but adds that many are still dissuaded by cost if their plans don't cover it. I believe you can use him as a measuring stick for physician acceptance. It took 7 1/2 months for him to go from no, those drugs aren't safe to it's my drug of choice. I also believe that when Eisai can get insurance coverage at 80% and another biggie, UHC comes to mind, this will be blockbuster in the following year.
perhaps you should go to that board where you'll have some friends. Here it's ignoreland.
Diet Supplement Causes Nearly 100 Hepatitis Cases

A popular diet supplement has caused an outbreak of severe liver disease, sickening nearly 100 people in 16 states since it was first reported in Hawaii last year, according to a new paper. The publication calls for a better system to remove dangerous supplements from the market.
As of February, OxyElite Pro, a dietary supplement manufactured by USPLabs that claims to help people burn fat, has been linked to 97 cases of hepatitis, including 47 people who were hospitalized, three who needed liver transplantations and one person who died, according to the paper, which was authored by Dr. Pieter Cohen, an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and a general internist at Cambridge Health Alliance.
Although people who took the supplement started getting ill in May last year, the Food and Drug Administration did not learn of the cases until four months later, in September, when doctors reported a cluster of liver illnesses in Hawaii. USPLabs stopped selling the product in October. [10 Medical Myths that Just Won't Go Away]
Health officials suspect that a new ingredient called aegeline that was added to the supplement caused the illnesses, Cohen said. Because the FDA regulates supplements only after they come to market, companies are not required to prove that their products are safe and effective before marketing them.
"This really points to the fact that there's no safety testing … before a new ingredient shows up in a supplement in the United States," Cohen said. "Guess who's the experimental animal — the consumer."
Dangerous supplements are supposed to be identified and removed quickly, but this is often not the case, as demonstrated by the hepatitis outbreak, Cohen said. Doctors can report adverse events tied to dietary supplements through an online portal called MedWatch.
But in most cases, the FDA does not receive reports of the harmful effects of supplements, Cohen said. Those cases might be reported to a poison control center, which does not communicate with the FDA, or they might not get reported at all, he said.
"Dangerous supplements remain on store shelves for weeks, months or years" because the FDA has a fractured system for monitoring supplements, Cohen said.
He proposes that all dietary supplements should be registered, and information about the supplements and their ingredients should be incorporated into a database maintained by the FDA and poison centers.
Under this organization, if a person has an adverse reaction to a supplement, it would be reported to a response team made of up doctors, toxicologists, pharmacologists and chemists. The team would then investigate the case, report to the FDA and offer advice about treating the patient.
"In the situation where we know that some supplements out there may be dangerous, we'd better have a really good system" to detect them, Cohen said.
While improved monitoring of supplements is needed, it is not the ultimate solution, Cohen said. Congress should change the law regulating supplements to require that all supplement ingredients undergo safety testing before they come to market, he said.
"Until that happens, consumers and physicians cannot be assured that the pills, powders and potions labeled as dietary supplements are safe for human consumption," Cohen wrote in the April 3 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.
