One glance at the Wall Street Journal yesterday – recalls, recalls, recalls.
Johnson & Johnson recalls a catheter; Baxter, drug company, recalls their anti-coagulation shot, Heparin over allergic reactions; Merck is denied application to sell their new “Mevacor” over the counter….
There is a lesson here. Medicine is not exact. Drugs are not perfect. Medications are not predictable. Health care providers use products they probably shouldn’t use – and know little about.
Please do the research on medications, products you use… you won’t be shocked to hear they may have been recalled!
