Why is a generic medication left on the market when the brand name is pulled?

 

Question by seremela: Why is a generic medication left on the market when the brand name is pulled?
Take Serzone for instance. Why is it unsafe but its generic equivalent of nefazodone is still available?

Answer by Kmart
There is a very easy, but unsettling explanation for this… basically. Bristol-Meyers-Squib (BMS) voluntarily pulled the brand from the market, because they didn’t want to get sued, but the generics feel that it is worth it to continue… Here is what is scary: The generics license the drug from BMS, so they still get to make money off the prescription. If Serzone killed 100 people for example, BMS would lose billions and billions etc. These small generic companies can take the risk because if they kill 100 people, they don’t have the deep pockets the major pharm companies due, so even if they are sued, they just declare bankruptcy. Its less appealing to sue a generic maker unless they are the biggest.

Basically, the benefit outweighs the risk for small companies, but not for the giants. Sad huh?

Have you suffered any side effects from statins( Levacor, Zocor, Pravachol, Lipitor, Crestor, etc.)?

 

Question by thom t: Have you suffered any side effects from statins( Levacor, Zocor, Pravachol, Lipitor, Crestor, etc.)?
Statins users: have you done any research on side effects before you agreed to take the drugs?

Answer by alt.healer
Statins can cause muscle pain and in some cases actually destroy muscle tissue. Also… statins block the body from producing a chemical called coenzyme Q10. coQ10 is needed by the body for cellular energy and to keep the heartbeat strong. If coQ10 is depleted, it could be a factor in weakening the heartbeat. That could cause a heart attack. Take supplemental CoQ10 if on statins.
