    Do you mind explaining what a “black box” warning is/means?

    a black box warning is what the fda assigns to some prescription drugs - it is a signal that really bad adverse events have occurred in clinical trials, but given how serious the disease is (like, say lung cancer), the risk is considered acceptable. the fda requires that the text be enclosed in a black box (outline).





    not sure what the EMA analog is.

    Reminds me of a joke I heard.

    Not dying.

    Ugh, needles really turn me off. I'd rather diet than stick myself daily or even weekly. I agree with czb, the condition has to be serious to be worth the side effects (morbid obesity or T2 diabetes).

    I wonder if there are any updates from those posters who were trying this, I'm curious.
