    Pfizer rocks -

    They even took my case because my migraine medicine costs a lot - and insurance wouldn't cover it all -

    They will have my support for life.....

    Um yeah - about that Viagra

    I think that is listed as a vanity drug - right?

    Vanity drug... LOL. Never thought about it that way. But, um, if you're unemployed and take it... And subsequently have a bunch of kids... Doesn't that make the situation worse?

    LOL - NO a vanity drug is one the insurance companies say has NO generic due to patents but a doctor COULD prescribe another pilll that works just as well. Like - Nexium. Nexium has no scientific basis (according to our former insurance) that it works better than Rantidine, Prilosec or other OTC medications for stomach upset. Yet some patients SWEAR it works better - when the industry knows it does not.

    That's a vanity drug. But I'm with you on the more kids thing.
