Sounds like you are the one who wants it both ways.You do understand that the people who are selling the generic pill for so much less didn't have to spend millions of dollars in research and development to make the drug right??? Drug companies are making a profit just like every other company out there but they also have HUGE expenses to come up with the drugs and make them safe. People complain about the cost but then also complain when there isn't enough R&D to know what all the side effects might be before bringing to market....you can't have it both ways.
1. Poor Lilly spends billions on r&d, that's why it is sooooo expenses to buy there drugs....
2. There isn't enough r&d done on drugs before going to market to forsee everything that can go wrong...
Why don't you admit that you are a Lilly whore and don't care (1) about the safety of the drugs they bring to market and (2) Need to justify what they are doing in order to live with yourself.
How do YOU explain the litany of drugs from Lilly that turn out to be nightmares? Why don't we go back to 1982 and talk about Oraflex, which they Plead guilty to 25 counts related to mislabeling side effects?
What about Prozac?
Do YOU think it is just an overwhelming desire to bring to market "helpful" drugs, that Lilly just gets too excited and rushes them out there too fast (ya know, can't wait to be helpful)? Or do you think they are just completely inept; unable to research, develop, and adequately test drugs before unleashing them on an unsuspecting public?
Which is it, o bright one?
