Drug companies spend billions to market drugs to you and to doctors, even if they have unreleased research indicating safety problems. At the same time, lifesaving medications we need often cost more than we can afford.

    On medications affordability and saftey... I also would like to add... what about medication for cronic pain patients??? I have been diagnosed with many painfull problems, and hep. C is just one of them! I have had this for 38 years now!!! Dr's even call me the walking miracle! But unfortunatly like others with cronic pain , I have been told it will only get worse.
           All my Dr. is concerned about is my intake of pain meds.! I have been on these meds. for 9 years now, with no increases, nor have I asked for one!
   I am on the second to the lowest prescribed as it is!
        I have gone thru Dr's like candy, even fired one! He looked at me as if he had never been fired before? Well, theres always a first time!
           Most Dr's wont even prescribe the oxycontine that I am on! But I was 5told (after several trials of meds.) that the oxycontine was the best med. for me due to my liver (hep C.) and oxycontine , one 20mg. last for up to 10 hours! As others only would last 4-6 hours, that lead me to take as many as 9 vicodin a day! And I was still in pain . pluss the accetomeniphen
 was doing a job on my liver!
    I will be 50 soon (march 5th) and I am happy to have made it this long , but why should I go in pain when there is a med. out there to help? Addiction? I hear this all the time ! It's not in my vocablulary!
     Like they said "it will only get worse"
 And, by the way a--h---s like Limbaugh screwed it up for people like me along with greedy DR.s !
        I push for a pain free america, for americans suffering for whatever there problems be!
          I am sure to live alot longer, besides care2 needs me to sign pet. and write letters, and most important getting the word out ! Wake up America there is alot going on out there than your time shares, ATV's, planning your next vacation, or selling out to a Government that decieves you.
   Oh! Believe me I love my country but I fear my Government!!!
