In an effort to expand public awareness of the crisis created by the shortage of Armour Thyroid, I drafted a letter to the New York Times detailing the situation. My thought was to make as many people as possible aware of the situation hoping to create pressure on the FDA and Forest Pharmaceuticals to resolve their impasse.
So far it looks like the Times has rejected my letter. If we can get enough emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org , with the wording “Please publish the letter: FDA Plays a Dangerous Game with Patients Well Being, by Dr. Gary Pepper”, maybe we can get the letter or some form of coverage published. Please take a minute to help out. The more supportive emails sent, the better.
Thanks and let’s work together toward a positive outcome to this crisis. I’ll be posting here regarding any progress.
Gary Pepper, M.D.
