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" (twice); 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.
OK then - sounds like great stuff to me. How about you?
Actually, on second thought - I think I'll stick with nutrition ...

In vibrant health,

Dr. J
