maxalt, a migraine drug as bad as the problem it solves

Toronto, 2014.06.11

It's official, I can not take the migraine drug "Maxalt" without developing chest pains and winding up in the hospital. The word comes from both the neurologist and the cardiologist I visited in separate excursions to figure out what happened last week. I wound up being taken to the hospital with chest pains after taking three doses of Maxalt within a week, but apparently that was too much. I don't know what I'll do without a replacement for the drug I used for 25 years, that's now been yanked from the market, but I guess I'll muddle through. It's amazing to me that they sell this stuff; look at these side effects! It's been more than a week since my little bout last week and it's still not cleared up.

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.
