The RxISK Prize campaign has now had over $10,000 from 51 donations coming from 48 donors in 12 different countries. People from Korea to Argentina are engaging with the issue. We will give more details later in the week. It seems clear that Adverse Events – Drug Wrecks – are a Global Disorder, the greatest single source of morbidity and mortality on the planet but few apart from those affected seem to notice.
We have already had one reply from a pharmaceutical company from letters sent out last week, which needs to be explored further.
Meanwhile a further set of letters were sent last week to
The responses from these groups has been immediate and positive. In terms of getting the word out it looks like a good idea to write to the equivalent organizations in Argentina, Spain, Korea, Germany, America, etc or whatever county you the reader are in. If you could establish what organizations you have who are broadly in the area of sexual therapy or relationship counselling for whom Sexual Dysfunction might be an issue, and a person to contact, we can give you a template letter to translate and send.
Since the first letter was sent, another idea has been proposed. When it comes to satisfying basic human needs as well as wondering about issues like “coming out”, people with Post-Retinoid Sexual Dysfunction (PRSD), Post-Finasteride Syndrome (PFS), and Post-SSRI Sexual Dysfunction (PSSD) are in a position that is something like a cross between the position that people with disabilities are in and people with AIDS were in in the 1980s and 1990s.
This led to the following thoughts. Something like this might be included in any updated letter to any of the organizations readers track down. But it would also be great to get input from anyone reading this from any walk of life who might have had occasion to consider related issues at some point.
