I don't know if this is the right place to post this...... But it is so scary it should be posted everywhere!!

No More Skipping Your Medicine - FDA Approves First Digital Pill

It talks about putting the silicon chip in Metform, but way down at the bottom, (bold mine) is the scariest part. Big Brother could MAKE us all take statins!!!

"The first demonstration involved a placebo, but surely drug companies are eager to digitize their pills – and make sure patients empty out their prescriptions when they’re supposed to. Although possible, it is hard to imagine a complication would arise when the device is used with, say, Lipitor, that did not arise with the placebo. The usual FDA bottleneck could be loosened with the first incorporation into a bonafide drug"

Scary is right. And an understatement. This has so many deceitful possibilities it's not even funny. Especially considering how governments want to manage our lives. This is just wrong on so many levels.

Wow... While I could maybe see how this could be helpful in extreme cases (like with anti-psychotic medications), there's no fraking way I would ever participate.

It's my body, if I choose to not take a medication, that's my decision.

exactly. And how this would fly in areas that have patients bills of rights I'm not sure, but the implications are horrible.

I get more creeped out the more I think about it!! This is really an invasion of privacy! If they can do this, the next step is implanting a little chip in everyone with a gps signal in it......then "they" can tell where we are......obese people can't be in a donut shop......alcoholics, busted for being in a liquor store, etc...... all in the name of "protecting" our health.

OK, I'm straightening my tin foil hat and tip toeing off!!

What about fundamental rights. The government meddled in dietary guidelines and look where that has led to. Now this, obviously the pill is not going to be excreted & will remain in your intestines for God knows how long.

Honestly, I already feel like everyone is watching what I eat and what medicines I take just being diabetic. I cannot do not need the government piping in as well. It's hard enough as it is to be diabetic....sheesh!
