Wow! Thank you Karen! It is so critical to know of all of these problems before we take the drugs. I have already dealt with one drug problem.....phenfen. I don't need to take on another. Thank you Bev for catching that. The FDA is working for us....trying to make sure that these drugs are totally safe for us to take.....we shouldn't want them to do anything fact after the phenfen issue we should demand that the FDA follows very strict guidelines in giving approval.
