American Home Products Maker of Rotavirus vaccine and NEW Prevnar
And by the way, American Home Products won't let you see the product insert on their
website - you have to be a doctor or sales rep - so if there are no problems with it why
not show it.
American Home Product's recent track record in the consumer drug area. Here is a list of some of the company's recent problems:
1998- American Home recalled their drug "Duract", a painkiller that caused fatal liver problems in some long-term users.
July 99- the company halted shipments of its rotavirus vaccine,
used to prevent diarrhea in young children after it was linked to bowel
obstructions in infants.
August 99- AHP recalled 600,000 defective allergy kits used by people at risk for severe reactions from bee stings, certain foods or asthma.
August 99- AHP agreed to pay $50 million to settle a class action law suite brought by women who used its contraceptive Norplant. The drug was reported to cause headaches, irregular menstrual bleeding and nausea.
September 99- AHP is involved in an investigation being conducted by the FBI for
allegedly withholding information indicating that their diet drug "Redux" can result in heart valve problems.
