‘Like I said, it is a rare side effect.’
‘These classes of drugs work well with acute onset, solve the problem and can be discontinued with PROPER monitoring. ‘
First of all, why I keep on making these pleas for more kind attentions and concerns to be paid to the saddening conditions of the Tardive Dyskinesia victims, especially the young children in my home country and other nations which are not just as modern and developed as U.S and other European nations ?
The underlying reason is simply that those drugs that potentially cause Tardive Dyskinesia syndrome (including the other related ones such as cough medications like Phenergan etc) tend to be fed in a very much unprofessionally haphazard and arbitrary way to the less medical-conscious patients by the medical personnel in these less modern countries due to sheer ignorance, gross negligence and sometimes, deliberate lack of medical ethics for the sake of pure profit-motive.
In the context of U.S and other more developed nations, I would fully agree with the conclusion of the thesis paper as well as the claims made by you all above. Unfortunately, since the so-called ‘proper monitoring’ rarely happens in the case of Tardive Dyskinesia phenomena in these less modern countries, the related drugs thus in fact, tend to be fed continually and in a totally uninterrupted way to the victims mentioned above even when the relevant symptoms have explicitly manifested themselves. As a result, these people would tend to be the ones who continue to suffer innocently and ignorantly from the side effects of these medications. And this is indeed actually a very saddening fact of life.
Though given the fact that by being merely the manufacturers and suppliers of these Tardive Dyskinesia related drugs which have been approved by the relevant regulatory body under the compliance of the certain strict terms of conditions (such as proper monitoring etc) which may be at best fulfilled by the developed countries given their resourcefulness, and by no way these entities would need to bear any legal responsibilities and obligations for any ‘unexpected occurrences’ taking place abroad, the introduction of these drugs nevertheless has opened the way for the eventual sorry plight of these Tardive Dyskinesia victims in these less modern nations.
Thus, I am in the opinion that a humanitarian role and principle needs to be effectively exercised in this case to create a higher-level of self-awareness and self-consciousness among the related persons so that they can in turn safeguard their own medical welfares in a more informed and effective way to avoid any undesired disasters.
‘If absolute power corrupts absolutely, where does that leave God? ‘
Well, my viewpoint is that God will help those who at least have the will to help themselves.
