The FDA is currently considering a petition that will ban and regulate compound hormones for menopausal women and that has ladies like Michelle Robson doing a little hor- moaning of their own.
Robson is asking women who need custom-made hormones to besiege the FDA with letters, e-mails and phone calls or, if they really want to send a message, empty prescription bottles and night sweat-soaked night gowns.
According to Robson, not everyone can take off-the-shelf hormones and she says until she started taking customized pills, she was so ill that she couldnt get out of bed and had a foggy brain.
So far, 40,000 women have barraged the FDA and Robson says the fact that the organization hasnt made a decision yet is a good sign.
Still, she figures every little bit helps and asks other women and the men in their life to moan to their elected officials about the situation.
