FDA Warns About Fraudulent Tamiflu


Fraudulent product is dangerous to patients allergic to penicillin

Silver Spring, MD — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned consumers about a potentially harmful product represented as “Generic Tamiflu” sold over the Internet. FDA tests revealed that the fraudulent product does not contain Tamiflu’s active ingredient, oseltamivir, but cloxacillin, an ingredient in the same class of antibiotics as penicillin.

The agency reminds patients who are allergic to or may have experienced adverse reactions from penicillin products that they are at risk of experiencing similar reactions from cloxacillin. This includes a sudden, potentially life-threatening reaction called anaphylaxis, with symptoms that include difficulty breathing, chest tightness, swelling of the throat or tongue, hives, dizziness, loss of consciousness, or a rapid or weak pulse. To date, the FDA is not aware of any reports of adverse reactions.

There is no FDA-approved generic drug for the prescription product Tamiflu. «Read the rest of this article»

Clean, Well-Maintained Car Worth More


Bethesda, MD — Keeping your car clean will significantly help preserve its overall value, according to the Car Care Council.

“Keeping your vehicle clean not only protects your valuable investment, it also fosters a sense of pride and accomplishment,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “It’s a task that takes very little money or effort, but delivers huge returns.”

Polishing your vehicle once every six months and washing it once a week prevents the buildup of damaging chemicals and dirt that may harm the vehicle’s finish. In addition to regular care, it is important to watch for any dents, dings, scratches or cracked glass. These problems, when left unattended, can lead to more expensive repairs down the line. «Read the rest of this article»
