Taking Karla's lead, I tracked down my local Imitrex rep today. Laid a lot of facts and numbers on her. I got a fair ration of the normal Corporate Form Letter talk. I did get her to promise to present our proposals at the regional meeting next month.
I also got her cell number from the caller ID on my phone so she can't hide from me now.
I have 2 or 3 more names thanks to Paco. Also trying to work with Paco's son John who spends a lot of time dealing with Glaxo in the business world.
Basically OUCH is trying to get Glaxo to:
Give CH equal billing with migraine in their advertising.
Educate the public and medical communities regarding CH and Imitrex injectable as a treatment.
Produce a 3mg injection or increase awareness of the vials that are available.
Pressure the insurance companies to recognize Imitrex as a CH drug and cover more than 6 shots per month.
Maybe even kick a little money OUCH's direction to aid in working on these items from our side of the fence.
Keep bugging them you "clusterheads"!
