When a new FDA drug-and-money scandal has doctors, US senators, and even the March of Dimes in an uproar, you know it’s bad. A new Action Alert!
A drug which the FDA approved more than half a century ago—which doctors have been prescribing for their patients with high-risk pregnancies through compounding pharmacies with great success—was designated by the FDA an “orphan drug.” Now KV Pharmaceutical has been given the exclusive right of production and sale (not to mention drug trial tax breaks!). They immediately raised the price from $10 per dose to $1,500—simply because they could.

Menstruation, a period in which of five to seven days is the most torturous time for many women. The normal problems of menstruation commonly faced by women are menstrual cramps and vomiting. This happens due to some hormonal and internal physical changes which take place during this time.
A woman in her mid-forties called me in a panic. She was suddenly having hot flashes. She had never had hot flashes before nor had she had any other menopausal symptoms. In fact, she is still menstruating regularly. However, she was experiencing other symptoms –heart racing, weight loss, agitation, sleeplessness, increased body temperature– all pointing to hyperthyroidism, i.e., too much thyroid hormone. Since her thyroid tests and physical examination were both normal, her doctor wanted her to take estrogen for the hot flashes.
