First is some good news for Avonex and Rebif users. It looks like Biogen-Idec is going to be seeking marketing approval for monthly dosing later this year.

Second is kind of a double edged sword. The FDA has approved over the counter sale of Oxytrol, a drug aimed at overactive bladder. They have approved it for sale to women bu not men. Men will still require a presciption. (I guess we're too stoopit.) While OTC access may make the drug easier to get, removing it from prescription benefit coverage may make it more expensive.

I'm wondering how they will enforce that restriction.  What if I claim I am buying it for my wife?

Hey, be careful guys! We know you're smart. It might be because there's a higher risk factor of some sort for you if you take the drug. Maybe they've determined that you should be under a doctor's care while on it due to some sort of side effect, and that's why the FDA would require the script.

Oh, wait. I just read the article. I guess maybe science has finally proven that men can't take care of themselves :p

Men can taje xare of themselves.  Tgey just don't see any point in doing so when their women do it so much better than they do themselves.
