Perhaps Lilly should take that $465 million and develop a drug that cures millions with chronic illnesses. That way, I wouldn't have to spend thousands of dollars per month on medication myself!!

Irate, why are you so angry? Lilly makes tons of drugs that help combat chronic illness. They are also a business and are out to make money. You should be happy they have drugs like Cilas. This will allow them to continue making "real" medicine while having a cash cow feed the bottom line. Plus, why would Lilly developing new drugs make you pay any less? HIV, diabetes and cancer(the three main chronic amd/or terminal illness with high medicinal/care cost) will always carry a high price tag due to the inelasticity of the commodity. Its all supply and demand my dear Irate.

Irate, here is a "hypothetical" situation and question:

I have a pill that will..

a)...prolong your life if you are terminally ill
b)...improve your life in some way, for example alleviate extreme pain.

What would you be willing to pay to live one more day, or enjoy one more breath?

TEN TIMES DIABETES incident with Zyprexa users

Zyprexa, the best- selling schizophrenia remedy from Eli Lilly & Co., with $4.2 billion in sales last year.

Zyprexa was the best-selling schizophrenia treatment in the second-quarter and had the sixth-highest sales of any prescription drug worldwide, bringing in $1.1 billon in the quarter

Should you take ZYPREXA? What are the Risk?

Zyprexa (Olanzapine) is Lilly's largest seller. It used to be the first-place atypical antipsychotic in the U.S. but has dropped to third. This is probably because doctors and patients have learned, through the NIH CATIE study and through thousands of lawsuits, that it has the most dangerous side effects of all the drugs in its class.

It causes diabetes, hyperglycemia, and death. 8000 plaintiffs settled with Lilly in 2005 and are still waiting for payment.

Many states have sued Lilly for alleged fraud, for not revealing its side effects, and for compensation to their state's Medicaid programs for the costs of the drug as well as the costs involved in caring for people who got such conditions as diabetes from the drug.

Lilly has also been charged with alleged fraud in off-label marketing of the drug for children.

Many individual lawsuits remain outstanding and will begin to be heard once the 8000 plaintiff suit has been finalized. Lilly states that it will "vigously defend" itself against these individual lawsuits, but a number of them are for death allegedly caused by this drug

These law suites go over the line. First off people still take cancer drugs even though the chemo can cause other types of cancer and death. Everything in life is a calculated risk. I feel much safer having a schizophrenic medicated on zyprexa then dellusional and on the verge of doing something dangerous. Do you really think lilly would sell a drug they thought would cause mass harm? The FDA did approve it in the first place. This isnt some back water charleten peddeling his snake oil to farm wifes and Lilly is not Merck. They didnt hide years of test results.

I have used http://goodgeneric.com for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

There is an answer to disease....Look up glutathione and any condition...GSH depletes as we age and the body/brain use it daily. With 109,000 peer reviewed articles in Pubmed.gov please ask your Doctors what they know about this tripeptide in the cells....

The science is available, the supplement is incredible and inflamation is disease....

After 125 years Dr. Robert Keller, Dr. Herbert Nagasawa spent 30 years finding a supplement to make the body reproduce and recycle it's OWN GSH....Need more information....google it or contact me at gshlover@yahoo.com....my dog uses it to optimize everyone of her CELLS....WOW....

It's interesting why so many Doctors are not aware of GLUTATHIONE in the CELLS or maybe they don't have time to research inflamation. I have used a supplement to slowly change the inflamation in my brain cells and can now say I have only one medication left to wien slowly down. The benefits of a supplement that also slow the aging process, give energy, mental clarity, focus and optimal celluar funtion for the master antioxident anti toxin of our cells, Raises the immunity and white blood cells, cleans TOXINS out of the CELLS...and on and on.....109,000 peer articles on Pubmed.gov show the SCIENCE of the body Our GSH or glutathione depletes as we age I decided to investigate. Inflamation is the reason for 100% of our diseases and I was curious about raising my glutathione levels and see what happened over time. Using a supplement that doesn't have any side effects has helped my body and brain reproduce, recycle and repair my cells. It's the deeper sleeps that helped my brain slowly HEAL itself. Changing a toxic environment also makes a difference as does prayer. But why are there so many articles the Doctors are not looking at about GLUTATHIONE. Just GOOGLE them and find out....glutathione and bipolar disease, or concussion and glutathione or whiplash and glutathione....or diabetes and glutathione....it goes on and on and if all mammals, plants and micro organizms have GSH it must be important.

Perhaps a lot of doctors don't care about GSH because of this:

Raising GSH levels through direct supplementation of glutathione is difficult. Research suggests that glutathione taken orally is not well absorbed across the gastrointestinal tract. In a study of acute oral administration of a very large dose (3 grams) of oral glutathione, Witschi and coworkers found "it is not possible to increase circulating glutathione to a clinically beneficial extent by the oral administration of a single dose of 3 g of glutathione

I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.
First time I took Viagra from http://edx-airstorepills.info it took 30 to 40 mins to work. Work very well for me with no side effects. Was able to have sex more then once. My partner is also very pleased with the results.
