Thank you for your courage...

Dear Dr. Abramson, thank you for your "Overdosed America" I learned about one week ago from People's Pharmacy and from you. Thank you for your courage to write and to speak about this horrible topic, that is embarrassing the USA.

As a neurologist, several years ago I started to protest against over-advertised Interferons for Multiple Sclerosis.Learning that statins if taken too long, damage muscles and nerves including heart muscle, I tried to share this message with patients and with Cardilogists. No success. Seeing patients overtreated with antipsychotics and antidepressants and developing either unvoluntary movements or seizures I tried inform patients and reach psychiatrists. I lost my job.

Some of above medications can be helpful when taken not too long and not too much. Even Bextra and Vioxx could be of great help to people if taken for very short period of time and only periodically.

If I can be of any help in this matter please let me know. Thank you again.
Kindly. Joanna Woyciechowska, MD, PhD, BC Neurologist.
