I worked for Merck – well the part that was called Schering-Plough when it was that (they made Claritin, Dr Scholls, animal products mostly) So Merck’s had this asthma inhaler called Singulair that for YEARS AND YEARS has been known to cause some nasty side effects such as thoughts of su_cide etc in kids and teenagers and groups petitioned the FDA to do something about it. Well, they made a thicker black line around the black-box warning which of course doesn’t do much. “Cape does not allow wearer to fly” – still good it’s there but really, capitalism-be-damned – putting thoughts of self-ending in kids needs a little more than a 4pt vs a 2 pt outline on a box So I get the frustration and it’s chronic and not new. Join the whole battle instead of focusing on the exciting one
