Okay. You show me once - just once where I have written the that pharma industry is wonderful since 2006, when I joined?
You write anti-drug comments often. I try to ignore them, because there's better things to do with life than read comments that aren't based on personal experience.
I don't want to clash with you Harry. You don't have MS and don't suffer the instant stress symptoms.
I know that in another thread you suggested to someone that they shouldn't be here if they can't stand up to vigourous discussion, but that's what MS does to those of us who actually have it.
In a country where medicine is not-for-profit, we have to take what's available.
There is no patient power and if by some incredible stroke of luck one of these drugs actually works better than the statistical norm, then people should know that occasionally good things happen.
I don't care about Serono, or Merck in the US. Why do you?
What happens in the US, is of little importance to the health care systems of the UK and Spain.
But if someone was to take my Rebif away, I'd be incapacitated within 2 years. LDN alone didn't stop relapses and I'll never try life without Rebif whilst I'm still lucky to be in RRMS - not until a better, safe drug comes along.
I value my quality of life very dearly. Very, very dearly indeed.
That's all I'm going to write on this.
You don't and can't possibly understand what it means to have your relapses stopped/greatly slowed as you have never once in your life had a relapse. It's as simple as that.
Ian and several other people have been told over and over by Harry Z that their drugs can't work and that the pharma industry is corrupt.
Nice twist but perhaps you should go back and read what I've said for quite some time. I have not said that the DMDs can't work but that their efficacy is a far cry from being effective in the treatment of MS. And if you think the MS pharma industry is so wonderful, then you have been living on a different planet. Did you completely miss the story on Serono having to pay millions in fines for their actions in paying docs under the table to RX Rebif?
I have never minded people disagreeing with my opinions. It makes for interesting threads. But please don't try and put words into my mouth. Thanks.
