More Bad News For Big Pharma

Posted by John Kuhnlein | Oct 22, 2015 | 0 Comments

Just a few weeks ago a study showed that placebos work almost as well as very expensive new pain killing medications.  Now another study says that back pain sufferers should skip such prescription drugs as opioids and muscle relaxers entirely. The better option turns out to be Ibuprofen or naproxen. Sadly for the Mercks of the world, you can buy either of these in bulk at Costco or any drug store.  Right now, you could buy 400 Ibuprofen pills for around $12.00 at  Take your prescription for Oxycontin down to Walgreens and I assure you the copay will be more than $12.00. That does not even account for what your insurance company will pony up.

Rotten Exchange?

Is it just me or do drug companies look ever more like organizations designed to make huge profits more than to cure or comfort the sick? Not an original thought, I know, but studies like this really give me pause.

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
