💊💊💊NEW TWEETORIAL 💊💊💊
This is about #PartD and #AuthorizedGenerics and how some generics aren't a very good deal for health plans, even if they provide savings to patients. With @profmikecarrier @NancyKeatingMD @AmeetSarpatwari. 1/7
jamanetwork.com/journals/jamai…
You might remember headlines like this one that were telling us about companies coming out with generic versions of their $$$$ brand-name drugs. We saw this for #insulin #hepatitisC and #epipen over the past few years. 2/7
nytimes.com/2019/03/04/hea…
These are "authorized generics" which are when a brand company takes off the brand name but the drug is exactly the same. In these cases, the generic product came out way before patents were expired. 3/7

I read somewhere statement by @PawarSpeaks on #IndiraG & her death.

1: Pawar is frustrated with NO one asking him for anything except where is @AnilDeshmukhNCP?

2: He believed that as king of #Baramati he will still have his swag - he is cut short & agencies are too close

1/n
3: His Frustration - with change in Essential Commodities Amendment Act he cannot whip inflation to suit his need.

4: He believes #IndiraG was murdered by Farmers of #Punjab - कौन सा गाँजा फूंकते है यह 🧐

5: Does be mean that everyone in #Punjab is a murderer?

@nstomar

2/n
6: @narendramodi ensured that his daughter remains poor & is NOT able to grow Crores of out of flower pot.

7:In short - @PawarSpeaks is just another #IrrelevantSeekingRelevance

8: It’s just that #LongRope is keeping him away from #Tihar - can’t say about 👇🏼

What led to #AssamMizoramBorder tension?
Here is relation btw CM @himantabiswa's hot pursuit against #drug mafias/ betel nut smugglers n #Mynamar #Mizoram based smugglers which r aggrieved due to @CMOfficeAssam @assampolice's crackdown on internatl cartel. Thread #ShameOnMizoram+
If you want to understand the aggression shown by Mizo groups against Assam, you should read about the illegal mafia of drugs, betel nuts and other cartels calling shots in Mizoram. Himanta’s campaign against drugs has rattled those drug lords, who were making millions +
The Mizo mafias and their heinous crimes are uncovering now. The anti drug campaign launched by Assam Police has seriously damaged the drug and betel nut mafia in Mizoram. What is more disturbing is the tactical support of Mizoram admin and police to these criminals +

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Indore has developed a cost-effective new asparaginase drug with lesser side-effects to treat Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). Asparaginase is an enzyme that is used as a medication, using the protein engineering approach.
ALL is a type of blood cancer representing nearly a quarter of cancer cases diagnosed among children. Around 25,000, new cases of ALL are diagnosed every year in India.
The institute said that repeated administration of asparaginase, currently to treat ALL, causes serious side-effects such as allergic reactions, neurotoxicity, among others.

I followed @FitTuber advise and got all these #Ayurveda medicines which he outright claimed are '#safer', ''#effective' than conventional prescription drugs for day to day use. These will be tested for #safety first - will undergo GCMSMS, ICP-OES and FTIR analyses.

I looked at packaging and found interesting (poor regulation, absurdity), #quackery, #pseudoscience based descriptions like this:
Malaria - caused by parasite
Dengue - caused by virus
Typhoid - caused by bacteria.
One tablet to rule them all. Reminds me of lord of the rings.

This particular #ayurvedic tablet is good for indigestion, hyperacidity and THEN - like a @starwars hyperspace jump 🤯SCABIES🤯. How? Why? What is the mode of action within this very broad range of 'symptoms to disease'. You know this medicine is #fraud.
Also check out 'etc'🙅‍♂️

Azadi is not an option
A #Thread
What does a misguided #Kashmiri mean by “Azaadi”? Is it the right to #equality, right to #freedom, right against exploitation, right to freedom of religion, cultural & educational rights, right to property & right to constitutional remedies
(1/27)
If that is the meaning of “Azaadi” then it is already entrusted to them through the #constitution then who are these people and why are they asking for Azadi?
(2/27)
The people of #kashim for long have been disassociated with the #progress in mainland due to provisions of #Article_370 which restricted the investment and #development in the state.

To make matter worse, #Remdesivir is a #drug that “has had its development costs paid for, in large part, by independent donors like governments and ministries of health in #China, the #WHO, and the US government.”

We get NSAIDs, Bupe, and woo pushed at us all the time.
The people who are suffering are the ones who need #opioids & can’t get them.

1. The inchoate threat of law enforcement, particularly DEA.
2. The conflation of medical and non-medical users
3. The resulting war on #pain patients and physicians.
4. This leaves people with addiction and #drug dealers untouched. /2

Post 2016, plus state overreach, we see physicians harassed by law enforcement, with medical boards rolling over, or actively assisting.
7. On a parallel track, the VA blithely cuts only opioid Rx by over 1/3 goes {shocked pickachu face} when veteran suicides skyrocket.
