Christopher Lydon talks to Dr. Marcia Angell

Nothing new for pharma regulars...but a few good sound bites nevertheless...

"FDA: Lapdog instead of a watchdog"

"Caduet (Norvasc+Lipitor) is like Shampoo and conditioner in one bottle"

"Pharma has bought Congress....and politicians need the money.....but the only thing they need more than money is votes."

I’ve seen ads on TV for Caduet. It has two ingredients. One is Amlodipine and the other is Atorvastatin. With my RxDrugCard I can get 30 tablets of Amlodipine for $9 and 30 tablets of Simvastatin for $9. I’ll bet they are charging more than $18 for this new drug! Don’t pressure your doctor into giving you something just because it’s new. Do your homework. Find a drug card like I did at www.rxdrugcard.com. I think that RxDrugCard.com is the best drug card available for prescription discounts.
