I find this curious: occasionally medications are pulled off the market permanently when confirmed deaths due to taking the medication starts to become a "thing".
💊Seldane (an antihistamine) was approved in 1985 and banned in 1997 for causing 8 known deaths.
💊The Fen/Phen debacle (for the pharmacists who were around in the 90's, you'll also remember this one). Fenfluramine/dexfenfluramine and Phentermine combo for weight loss....... remember that one? It was a hot and heavy combo in 1992 until 90 confirmed cases of heart valve problems in women took that combo off the market in
1997. (Phentermine was allowed to stay but the fenfluramine/dexfenfluramine was pulled). Turns out, 30% of the people who had taken the Fen/Phen combo ended up with abnormal heart dysfunction..... it just took 5 years of "ojt" for it to become accepted truth.
💊Baycol was pretty short lived. It was a "golden child statin"..... sure to lower cholesterol at low doses, and introduced in 1997. It was withdrawn from the market in 2001 after having caused 52 deaths related to rhabdomyolysis.
💊Vioxx was a very popular anti-inflammatory approved in 1999, used to treat arthritis. In 2003 it was a "top 10" most widely prescribed drug.... another "golden child" of the pharmaceutical industry. In 2004, Merck (the manufacturer) announced a world wide withdrawal of the medication. Over 88,000 heart attacks including 38,000 deaths from those heart attacks was the reason for the withdrawal. By the time it was withdrawn, an estimated 20 million people had taken it.
8 deaths. Drug pulled from the market
90 serious heart related dysfunctions. Drug pulled from the market.
52 deaths. Drug pulled from the market.
38,000 deaths. Drug pulled from the market
Roughly, each medication was recalled 4-5 years after it was introduced to the market, and unlike the vaccine industry, at least the survivors received some pretty hefty payouts by Big Pharma for their pain and suffering. Survivors of a vaccine injury will not get a hot cent because that's what's written into our country's laws.
As of today, February 4th..... a certain vaccine (which shall remain nameless to protect this account) has been in circulation for a few months. According to the CDC VAERS tracking site (which is historically UNDER reported) here's the current stats:
Life Threatening Adverse Events: 270
Total reported adverse events: 9794
I'm just gonna leave it at that, but I will place pics of the VAERS numbers from the website in the comments.

Hey there....thanks for stopping by! This is me (Liz James)... an eclectic mixture of holistic (and organic) farmgirl meets pharmacist. It's a synergy that works well as I speak truths and dissect fact from fiction. If you're looking for healthier living options, you've come to the right place!
