Fibromyalgia News: FDA Approves Generic Form of Lyrica

news brief courtesy of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue The U.S. FDA has given Lupin Pharmaceuticals Inc. final approval to produce pregabalin, a generic form of the drug Lyrica, the anti-seizure medication that's approved for treating pain from fibromyalgia and neuropathy.
Pfizer Pharmaceuticals Inc. is about to lose its patent protection on Lyrica, clearing the way for other companies to market the generic form. Generic drugs are generally less expensive - sometimes dramatically so - than their name-brand counterparts. That makes them more likely to be covered by insurance.
Lupin hasn't announced when its pregabalin will hit the market.

Stop Cuts to SNAP (Food Stamps) Benefits Today!

It's National Call-In Day! Tell Congress to protect nutrition & SNAP (food stamp) benefits TODAY!
Tomorrow, the House Agriculture Committee will vote on a Farm Bill proposal that cuts SNAP by over $16 billion. What does this mean for hungry Americans?
Call or email your representatives today and let them know: I strongly oppose cuts to SNAP and other hunger-relief programs. Please vote against the proposed cuts to SNAP in the House Farm Bill. Increasing hunger in America is the wrong direction for our country.

I purchased "Elsewhere" by Gabrielle Zevin, at Goodwill, for 50 cents, on Friday. I started reading it on Monday morning and finished it before bedtime. I was hooked on finding out about the adventures of the main character, Liz and her friends, who are dead, living at Elsewhere. It was a fantastic read!

Received Our Unclaimed Money from The State! It Can Happen to You!

It seems like once a year the news media will run a story about checking the state treasurer websites to see if there's any money that's being kept in your name.
Usually I would blow it off but a couple of months ago I decided do a search at the California site and actually found a result under my husband's name! Whee
After filling out the forms, including required documentation we finally received our check this Thursday! Great timing because we are getting hit with a large electric bill!
