Default Scared to try a medicines with stupid names like Tresiba and Toujeo

Since Toujeo is three times more concentrated than Lantus, the amount of insulin injected is 1/3 the amount to get the same dose of insulin.

I think I would like that, 1/3 the amount, but that name sounds like something some stoner made up for a new strain of weed he is growing or maybe the name of his dog.

I know its just a name but it tells me not to trust it.

Oh,for heaven's sake. I use Tujeo. It's just another insulin that replaces your long-lasting one.

The names are results of extensive searches for pronounceable letter combinations which don't sound much like anything else and which can be trademarked. There ain't many of those combinations left.

If the drug helps its recipients (no comment on these particular drugs) then IMHO they could call it "Moose Droppings" and I'd take it.

How about brain disabling "Abilify" ? They imply it makes you more "able".

Bristol-Myers Squibb to pay $515M settlement, illegally promoted the sale of Abilify, an anti-psychotic drug, for pediatric use and to treat dementia-related psychoses. I knew Googling Abilify Fraud would come up with something, half a billion dollar fine for pushing that nerve toxin on children. People should have gone to prison.

I fell for the serotonin scam took psychiatric poison and got diabetes.

So is it basically the same thing as Lantus but you only inject 1/3 the amount ?

I sense some bitterness here, and it is justifiable, Abilify was used for lots of things, including manic-depression.

I took it for that, and it sent me to the moon, because I got higher that a kite on it. I went manic, and could not come down, until I cut the dose way down.

Things went badly right from the start, and I could have been jacked up on coke, for all the distinction that it made. Is it still on the market?

No wonder that had to pay 1/2 billion, that stuff was dangerous.

Those SOBs gave me Zyprexa for anxiety and insomnia. "Off label"

Lilly Settles With 18,000 Over Zyprexa. Eli Lilly piad $500 million to settle 18,000 lawsuits from people who got diabetes or other diseases after taking Zyprexa, Lilly's drug for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Jan 5, 2007

I got so increadibly sick coming off that "non addictive" rip out your soul can't feel life zombie poison back in 2008. That extra hunger rebounded into inabilty to eat, insomnia from hell, panic attacks... Nausia , running to the back door to vomit... Sick for months. In the hospital twice...

Early on when the Rx ran out and I was up all night with hellish insomnia one of those quacks tried to give me Lithium implying the withdrawal sickness was "my illness" coming back. Never asked me what I was like BEFORE taking that toxin from hell.

Psychiatry is an atrocity and the mass drugging children is a crime against humanity the only thing that has slowed their march of death through the population was the rise of social media.

When Zyprexa "olanzapine" made me sick I could only find on thread on the internet describing the withdrawal sickness. Now there are 100s describing that hell. Finally those sociopaths in suits at Lilly couldn't deny it anymore.

EDIT: I have to put a link to back up those strong words http://psychrights.org/states/alaska/CaseXX.htm

No one can read that and call my post a "rant" .

Again, as I wrote (bold emphasis mine), "If the drug helps its recipients (no comment on these particular drugs) then IMHO they could call it "Moose Droppings" and I'd take it."

Probably in the history of medicine there is not a single medication that didn't go south for at least one person (or several people). Not debating that.

Returning to the thread topic, Metformin is one medication that has done far more good for humankind than harm. The name is immaterial; they could have called Metformin "Trashina" and it would work as well.

What I debate is that psychiatry goes south for many more people then any other direction. If it was abolished tomorrow more people would be helped then harmed.

Spock says, “Logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.” Captain Kirk answers, “Or the one.”

The psychiatric industry seems to think they can hurt the many then when you criticize them they can just point to the few or the one their treatment helped and shame you into silence.

When they came up with insulin therapy people with diabetes could live long happy lives.

When they came up with antibiotics the number of people getting really sick or dying from infections went way way down.

50 or so years ago they started concocting all these brain drugs and the number of people who became chronically mentally ill went way way up.

The world health organization found that people in 3rd world countries with mental illness and no access to psychiatric "care" had much better outcomes then people in the US and other developed countries where one "psychotic" episode lands you in psychiatry for life.

I am one of the many they hurt not an exception or in the minority.

I never took an official marketing class but I think they dropped the ball with those names. Not a new energy drink, I have to in inject the stuff.
