Monologue

Nurse JoAnne Conaway fills in for Dr. Wallach.  JoAnne starts todays show discussing the failure of the drug combo Zetia for lowering cholesterol.  The drug did not live up to it's billing despite the fact that it has been widely prescribed for nearly 2 years.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and JoAnne Conaway discuss a news article concerning the "off-label" use of Botox for chronic pain.  Both pointing out that the drug has not been approved for use as a pain reliever by the FDA.  Because of this long term use as a pain reliever has not been studied so long term side effects are still unknown.
