The pharmaceutical corporation have already made a packet out of the consumers and if they stop one they will come up with the other. Remember the case os Aspirin by Bayer. Once the drug was the wonder drug that cured all ailments then we realised it caused ulcers . But the heart specialist came up with yet another way . It is good for the heart as it increases the viscosity and 75 mg per day is good . Now we see all corporation from all over the world making tese in all sorts of form slow dissolve retarted etc I thank you FirozaliA.Mulla DBA

Why would it be prescribed BEFORE this study showed it was faulty and fraudulent? Another FDA approved drug that shouls never have made it to market, but MERCK got what it wanted, free test subjects who willingly accepted this garbage and took it on doctor's advice. Shows what pawns doctors are and how out of the loop they are.
