      SO!

      FDA has approved a pill that is meant to increase libido in woman. It does n`t work instantly like viagra, it takes weeks or months for the effect to arise. But it has some nasty side effects and was rejected twice before this last approval! side effects are low blood pressure and fainting ... it is dangerous when combined with alcohol.

      http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm458734.htm

      FDA has approved this pill because there is no other possible treatment for this group of people suffering from this condition ... (sounds familiar?)


      I mean, if THIS is reason to approve a dangerous pill to be marketed ... we will have at least something behind our back if a Tinnitus related medicine will ever be rejected for side effects ...

      on the other hand it might be that anything that comes close to a treatment for T will be approved ... just because there is nothing else available.

      Who do you trust more? The pharmaceutical companies? The assorted global regulatory agencies who all look to FDA to lead the way?

      It's all broken.

      The problem isn't the FDA, which is actually a conscientious organization, despite their political power struggles like all government entities. The problem is who is behind all those studies submitted to the FDA on behalf of drug manufacturers.
