The FDA is conserding reducing the maximum dosage on Tylenol and banning Vicodin and Percocet. Does this affect you in any way?

  • This doesn't affect me as I try to either alleviate pain thru natural methods like exercise, rest or homeopathic remedies. I think banning these is a drop in the bucket but a good start. I heard at a conference I attended that the US is the only country in the world to allow direct marketing of prescription drugs to the general public. I think that speaks volumes to our over medicated society and the irresponsible medical community that continues to use drugs as treatment.

  • Your convention lied.

    Some countries are all about direct marketting, Mexico for example - If you know what you need, you can go get it over the counter...

    Canada is also along that same path.

    Not sure what you think banning 2 drugs will do, other than inspire a company to make 10 more.
