...don't even ignore 'em.

Every day, I learn something that makes me feel like a chump. Here I am, posting often about the evils of prescription drug marketing. Did I really think there aren't any prescription drugs that haven't been approved by the F.D.A.? This Bloomberg story, about some of the companies in the US that manufacture and market drugs without ever approaching the F.D.A., took my breath away. Some of these guys even buy listings in the PDR for their unapproved drugs. And send reps to call on docs. And, you know what, docs prescribe them. And insurance companies pay for them. You can write your own rant. I'm too tired.
