I just love it when the FDA pretends to talk tough… like they’re doing now as they try to “tackle” a gout drug.
The drug was DANGEROUS when they approved it.
It REMAINED dangerous after it hit the market.
And naturally, it’s STILL dangerous today.
The drug febuxostat (Uloric) will increase your risk of death from heart disease by more than a third and from all causes by 22 percent.
What's to tackle? It’s deadly, so pull it.
Don’t worry, I won’t leave you holding the bag.
I’ve got EXACTLY how to replace it, and I’ll share my formula in a moment.
But of course, that’s NOT what they’re doing.
New drug, same old tricks
The feds AREN’T pulling Uloric – and they’re not replacing it.
They’ve just added a boxed warning… and are trying to make this deadly drug a “second-line” treatment.
They’re telling docs they should only use it if a “first-line” treatment either fails or if it causes severe side effects and reactions.
Not that docs ever listen to those kinds of things. Once a drug is approved, they pretty much do what they want.
By the way, this sudden concern over the drug’s risks comes just as the patent is about to expire.
The feds have… for YEARS… sat back and scratched their chinny-chin-chins at every report over the drug’s safety and done NOTHING as it reaped nearly $2 billion in sales over five years.
Only now… as the patent runs out and it’s about to lose profitability… are they actually ready to take action.
Quite the coinkydink, I’m sure!
But by NOT pulling the plug on the drug, patients could STILL suffer… get hurt… and DIE.
And none of them would know that there’s been a better answer, right in front of them, all along.
If you’re prone to gout, there are four steps you can take to end your pain:
- Lithium orotate can help the uric acid stay soluble in your blood instead of forming painful crystals around your joint (especially the big toe). Take 5-10 mg per day, three times daily. This is a pretty low dose of lithium and shouldn’t cause any side effects, but…
- Flaxseed oil (1-2 teaspoonfuls)and vitamin E (400 mg) can help cut the risk of side effects from the lithium even further.
- Vitamin C will flush the uric acid out of your system.Take about 2 grams, twice a day. If it makes you gassy, break it up into smaller doses.
- Tart cherry juice (not a blend, no added sugar) will help cut off the attack before it gets real bad. Nothing is 100% effective (not even those meds)… and even with the best planning and careful eating, the reality is you could still have an attack. At the first HINT of that pain – even the tiniest tingle in your toes – down 32 ounces.
And of course the usual advice applies: Drink lots of water, and limit foods rich in purines.
