Proving a Negative

You ask “. . . .How does Dr know it doesn’t work?”

That is a very ODD way to approach choosing a drug that costs three to four times a statin.

It seems the medical community, insurers, the FDA, the SEC and Congress are increasing asking “How do we know it WORKS?”
I’d want to know, for my relatives.

Moreover — it seems possible — likely, even, given ENHANCE — that “blocking cholestorol absorption through the intestines” (Vytorin/Zetia) has a differing OUTCOMES effect than blocking it through the liver (statin-therapy).

That is, Vytorin may lower LDL in some not-yet-understood-way, without being able to help reduce heart-attacks.

But it is, in fact, an open question, from a scientific point of view. I just wonder about anyone who’d say “how do we know it doesn’t work?” when the ENHANCE data suggested just that. On top of it all,Vytorin costs so much more — that is what an INVESTOR ought to focus on.

Cheers!

Zetia does help to lower cholesteral..has worked when only Crestor did not…How does Dr know it doesn’t work…Doesn’t say if his patients were worse after taking it…did their Cholesterol go down..If he was a big user he should have alot of his own data compiled from his patients..what did that determine.???Many questions if he is legit.
