From the Angry Pharmacist
From Respectful Insolence..
Kevin MD (who cites Medpage who cites but does not attribute my comparison of the WHI to Avandia risk)
Dr. Kevin links to Nissen -- one day after making his Avandia > 9-11 tragedy with this ask and answer with Newsweek:
"Is there a case for prescribing Avandia? Are there some patients for whom the benefits outweigh the risks?
Again, I donâ€™t think I want to go there. Itâ€™s important for me as a physician-scientist to put the data out there in a very neutral fashion, and not cast judgment about what people ought to do. Weâ€™re going to let everybody read our paper and make up their own minds. Obviously the FDA read our paper because they just issued a safety alert."
What a creep.
