I just heard about this myself so I figured some of you might have not heard about what's going on with Lotronex. Apprently the side effects can be incredibly severe. I pretty much knew that but not to the full extent. The FDA is getting a bit ornery because apparently three women who were on it died from bowel complications (inflammation). Also, a large number of women had to have surguery to unblock their colon.

Personally I think this is scary stuff. There are 33 possible side effects ranging from moderate to severe (life-threatening!). I don't know what they can do to alter the meds to make them less volatile and still work but I hope they work on it. Apparently they want to start advertising on television very soon. There is a sort of rush to get this drug on the market and I fear they might sweep these complications under the rug. They already are trying to come up with excuses why these women died and others did not. They say two were not taking it when they died (but what about before?) and that the third shouldn't have been on it because of previous issues. Still.... I have a hard time trusting this medication now.

Just wanted to share and see what you folks have heard or might think. I read the article in Advance magazine for radiology.
