48 Mulligans for the FDA
But vaguely promising.
I could make snippy comments about each one of these bullet points, especially the packaging bullshit, but it's too early... so I'll let y'all do that yourselves (courtesy of msnbc.com):
"Before the FDA can reconsider Barr’s application, the company must make the following changes:
* Restrict sales of the medication to women 18 and older, not 16 as it had sought.
* Package the nonprescription and prescription versions of the pill differently, though both would be kept behind the pharmacy counter.
* Provide details on how the age restriction would be enforced and on its plan to restrict sales to certain pharmacies."
And btw, 48 mullys is my absolute limit.
So, uh, FDA, don't make me pull out a crabber.
