Drug Regulation. MIMS reports restrictions on 3 Conventional Medical drugs - in just 1 month!

MIMS is a monthly publication, and sent free to all UK GPs. It is supposed to keep doctors up-to-date with all the latest news about conventional pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines.

The August 2013 edition reported on new restrictions on 3 ConMed drugs, here is what they say about them. Incidentally, don't worry if you don't understand the language being used. ConMed uses this language to ensure (or in the hope) that we don't bother to read it. All it means is that the drug concerned has been found to be more dangerous than we have been told before. Well, not us, exactly, but our GPs and doctors. Whether they bother to tell us is another matter!

MHRA limits retigabine indications.
The MHRA has limited the use of the adjunctive anti-epileptic treatment retigabine (Trobalt) to patients with partial onset seizures with or without secondary generalisation where other appropriate drug combinations have proved inadequate or have not been tolerated.

Use of codeine in children restricted by EMA
Children should no longer be routinely prescribed codeine-containing medicines, the MHRA has confirmed, following a review prompted by safety concerns about an increased risk of respiratory depression.

A prize for anyone who can find out how long we have been given this painkiller to children!
Now, it would seem, it is not safe at all for children under 12 years old; and restrictions are required for anyone under 18.
Well, I am in my 60's, and I am damn well not taking it! Why do they assume adults are safe?

Diclofenac cardiovascular warnings and contraindications updated
Recent cardiovascular safety concerns have led the MHRA to issue new prescribing advice for systemic formulations of diclofenac.

(See my blog on Diclogenac - the dangers of this drug have been known for a long time, and they are serious dangers).

The real danger of all conventional drugs and vaccines is that doctors do not know their dangers when they given them to us. It is only after we suffer adverse reactions (DIEs) to the drug that they find out, and then we have to hope they tell us, and we haven't been damaged too much.

The horse has bolted; and only then do drug regulators close the gate

This kind of 'drug regulation' is as good as useless. The only way to keep from danger is to say 'No' to all conventional drugs and vaccines, and find a medical therapy does does not expose us to these unnecessary dangers.
