Actavis, Adamas approved for Namzaric
Namzaric - a new Alzehimer's drug which is NOT NEW - just a combination of Namenda and Aricept. And the FDA approves of course. With all due respect to the FDA and Actavis, BALONEY. I am really glad that Actavis will have a product to sell, and they have a business to run. But most of the time, Namenda and Aricept do nothing. They provide some very limited support in the EARLY stages of Alzheimer's Disease, if that. I would view them as really really WORTHLESS. We have this incredibly serious epidemic of a terminal disease that totally destroys the brains of our Americans, and we are given these medications which are barely above an aspirin or a placebo, and we are announcing these as progress. It is not only unconscionable and unethical, future generations would look back on such failures as actually criminal. It is astounding that publications can release such PR press releases, which Actavis of course, has every to do, without any context on these serious health and medical ethical issues. I can only imagine what the next generation looking back is going to say about all this.
