Avandia Avalanche Continues
MedPage Today, a medical news service for physicians, has published the results of a reader poll about Avandia attitudes. Only nine percent of respondents said they would continue prescribing it without reservations, and one in four said it should be taken off the market.
Although 36 percent of the doctors said they would continue to prescribe it for select patients, 55 percent said they wouldn't prescribe it any more. (This is actually down from a poll taken this spring, when three-fourths of respondents said they would no longer prescribe it.)
