Patents expire, generics of all drugs eventually come in to play.
The only "RISK" here is because the generics will require three doses per day instead of one per day of the most current branded version which is still covered by patents. The "RISK" is only if the patient fails to take the medication as directed. That's not Obama's fault.
The money due the company for R&D has already been made under a patent system that has expanded terms since our Founding, from 14 years to typical 20 for drugs.
Get over it!
I'm not sure why you're attacking the Freepers above. I've seen directly where many generic drugs simply don't work the way that the name brand varieties do. The doctors administering to those patients did not recommend taking a higher dosage and in some cases specified the need for the name brand rather than risk the patient's health.
In life or death scenarios, there may not be the time to go through that routine.
OTOH, I like the suggestion to take more if the doctor sanctions it. They could always increase the dosage and prescription amount.
Kneejerk reactions happen here often, but this seems to be a valid concern for anyone who knows someone with HIV.
Nah, I’ll refer to the medical site article that says the use of generics can harm the efficacy.
And when the Obama clown REQUIRES those generics (and that will happen), the profits of the original R & D company will sink....and that will harm future development of new treatments and drugs.
