Subject: Correction - 12/14/08 Newsletter; Side Effects
Hi again folks,
In an effort to maintain accuracy and accountability, I wanted to drop a quick note of apology and to correct an exaggeration I made in my last newsletter.
I wrote that the warnings/contraindications disclaimer page in Parade Magazine's advertisement for ENBREL , contained the word "infection" 50 times. I re-examined the ad today and made an accurate count. " Infection " (or " infections ") appears only TWENTY times in the text. Again, my apologies.
There are also references to: " death " (t wice ); a higher chance for " getting lymphoma " and " certain cancers ", " tuberculosis ", " multiple sclerosis ", " persistent fever " , " bleeding ", " heart failure ", " allergic reactions ", " trouble breathing ", " swelling of ankles and feet ", lupus-like syndrome ", " inflammation of the nerves of the eyes ", and " headaches ".
And oh yes, in addition -- Tell your doctor if you have seizures , any numbness or tingling , or a nervous system disease (i.e., multiple sclerosis), heart failure , are scheduled for surgery , are scheduled for any vaccines , or are allergic to rubber or latex .
It was also noted that this list does not include all of the side effects with ENBREL , and that you can ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.
In vibrant health,
