Drug Companies in America

Only in america does a drug company combine Naltroxone, that is used to block the effects of opioids in an overdose, combined with Bupropion which is an antidepressant that is used to help people quit smoking.

Now it is being marketed to woman as a new weight loss drug.

The side effects are crazy and include seizures and mania, all for a 5% weight loss.  Not to mention that the study was a small sample size.  They were each provided nutritional and exercise counseling, which is probably what the weight loss was really about.

OMG what is going on when a drug company can market something that has huge side effects and such little gain.  America is really over the top.
