Pharmaceutical companies act under an umbrella of protective immunity when it comes to vaccines, but they are aggressive with almost all their medications. They fear hardly any repercussions for making “mistakes,” which often cost human lives. Because pharmaceutical companies fear little in the way of responsive litigation, they really act on their own free will. Part of that free will using people as their own guinea pigs for testing medications.
When it comes to medications, the typical protocol is to perform a series of safety test which, presumably, would lower the risk for people getting harmed by the medications. But often time those “test” are actually just the act of releasing them and “seeing how it goes.” Take an example from 2006, when the FDA forced Impax Laboratories to take Wellbutrin XL off the market. The reason? The FDA says that Wellbutrin XL simply did not work. But worse more? While it may sound as if the procedure worked perfectly, the fact is that Wellbutrin XL had been on the market, in a failed capacity, for 5 years. The FDA ignored a failed medication for 5 years.
The FDA approved the medication originally without any testing. The FDA assumed that if lower doses had worked, increased doses would work fine as well. In this scenario, people became the guinea pigs for testing. Generic versions of the medication had been approved in 2006 by the FDA. The generic company who released the medication was called Teva Pharmaceuticals, which use Impax Laboratories as their manufacturing company. The medication’s pitch was that it relieved symptoms of anxiety and depression. It came in both 150mg and 300mg doses. Immediately after its release, the FDA began getting complaints that the 300mg dose was causing side effects. The FDA was told of 100’s of people with side effects via a popular radio show couple, known as The People’s Pharmacy.
The FDA’s response to all this? They responded by not giving a damn.
The problem with drugs such as Wellbutrin XL is that they are commonly prescribed to people who are said to have mental issues of some sort. So their complaints are often seen as simply an extension of an already problematic person. In other words, their complaints were often invalidated by Doctors and the FDA.
As pressure mounted, however, the FDA decided that the drug should be studied. So they asked the Pharmaceutical company to create a study. That last sentence should terrify anyone reading this article. It was eventually found that the 300mg dose was a problem. In October of 2006, the FDA released the following statement.
FDA has approved five generic versions of Wellbutrin XL 300 mg. Each of these generics was approved based on bioequivalence studies comparing the 150 mg strength of the products to Wellbutrin XL 150 mg. Studies were not performed directly on the 300 mg strength of the products. Rather, the bioequivalence studies were performed using the 150 mg strength, and the results were extrapolated to establish bioequivalence of the 300 mg product.
FDA has determined that this approach is no longer appropriate to establish bioequivalence of 300 mg bupropion hydrochloride extended-release tablets to Wellbutrin XL 300 mg, and the Agency is revising its guidance to industry for how to conduct premarket bioequivalence studies in generic bupropion products.
So essentially the FDA admits that it didn’t test the drug. It admits to approving a drug based on assumption and eventually pulling it because it showed it didn’t work when taken by people. So the drug was human tested on the masses and failed. Now the pharmaceutical company is back to the drawing board. When you read this aloud, how can you not be absolutely terrified and baffled by it? These proceedings were completely criminal. This press release is an admission of fault. We can put lipstick on a pig by calling it bioequivalence studies, but it remains a pig.
But this is what happens. This is the process. When vaccines are released, it really is just a massive test on people and after that, it becomes a cover-up for as long as possible. The longer a drug or vaccine can remain on the shelf, the more time it has to continue to drive revenue. Do you really trust companies who do human testing to create vaccines for your kids? Or do you trust companies who knowingly feed the masses bad drugs to put vaccines into your children?
That press release above is a fact, it isn’t spin in any way, shape or form. The FDA and pharma actually did these things. They are criminal by the very definition of the word.
