Eli Lilly Urged Doctors to Prescribe Zyprexa Inappropriately

Bloomberg reports further on the Eli Lilly/Zyprexa scandal.

Doctors were urged to prescribe Zyprexa for elderly dementia patients, even though it was known that the drug would not help with that condition.

I urge you to read the Bloomberg article.

This is yet another horrifying example of deliberate wrongdoing by drug companies, with the result in this instance that "death rates among older dementia patients taking Zyprexa were “significantly greater” than those who didn’t get the medicine."

I believe that the only health in which drug companies are interested is the health of their own financial profits.

For your own health's sake it would be better to avoid taking pharmaceutical drugs unless they are absolutely necessary.
