for new medical drugs in Ireland & Designation of drugs for ME treatment
new drugs have been found to be very effective in the treatment of ME in
the USA, Canada, Mexico, Belgium and other EU countries. Most Irish doctors and the Irish
Medical Council have never heard about these new ME drugs. Their
knowledge on these matters is out of date. This lack of
knowledge means ME patients are being deprived of treatments which could
greatly improve their condition and bring about recovery in a majority of
cases. Many ME patients have been
waiting several years and decades, they cannot continue waiting, people
are dying of ME and the serious health complications caused by ME.
The Irish government and Irish Medicines Board should approve and designate the following medical drugs and
supplements for ME treatment on the basis of scientific research findings and successful medical treatments in several countries. These should be made available on the medical card or state payment schemes or federal payment schemes or private insurance payment schemes.
The treatments and medical drugs and supplements are listed in the following section - (5) Medical Treatment
A nation's health should be seen by governments as an investment not a
cost ; indeed an investment which can reduce economic costs and increase
overall economic revenues and productivity over the medium to long-term.
