Companies that still do business in Russia

Merck - Companies that still do business in Russia
Explore video interviews
Since Russia has invaded Ukraine, cant stay aside. With this review, we present our teams opinion only - nothing more than that. We as an organization always defend the freedom of speech by providing a platform for consumers to voice their opinions and to talk about any problems they may have with various businesses. Today, we want to give voice to the tragedy of the people of Ukraine and let the world know the truth. A lot of major companies suspended their business in russia not to support the war. However, there are still large international corporations that continue operating and paying taxes in russia. Taxes that are used to finance the army of the aggressor. With this video, we want to show the consequences of such a decision for civilians in Ukraine and ask these companies to stop doing business in russia.

I am not pissed, I am concerned because a pill was missing out my molnupiravir bottle and Walmart would not give me one to finish my last dose.

I was missing a pill I. My molnupiravir Covid 19 medicine. Will that lesson the effect of the medicine?

Injury from vioxx

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Attention Ms. Zachary: I am attaching several files related to the diagnosis of my disabling conditions as a result of taking Vioxx back in 2004. I have struggled to find any legal representation in order to get this matter resolved for more than 8 years now. Over the course of this time I have faced several surgeries and my ability to function has been deteriorating. Most recently (in the last year) I fell outside my home causing an injury to my right knee. My ability to grasp writing instruments is severely limited at this time, and I also struggle with simple tasks such as taking medication due to the deterioration I am experiencing. The other issue is that these complications have severely impacted my ability to work and have necessitated I begin a disability claim with Social Security. I was a school van driver for children with special needs prior to the pandemic, and the aforementioned injury to my right knee kept me out when I could have gone back last September. Other avenues for employment are exempt to me due to my fine and gross motor skill impairments Lastly, while this is not related, I wanted you to know that on the social level this is my situation. I currently reside in my mother's home (she is 85) along with my wife who has had to leave her position as a preschool teacher due to her own chronic health conditions that have caused her to now need supplemental oxygen in order to function. As our funds have been limited as a result, and my mother has a fixed income herself, we are seeking a resolution to this situation regarding the vioxx injury I suffered all those years ago so that we can finally move forward with our lives and all my mother the chance to spend her remaining years with the knowledge that her youngest son and his wife will be ok. You can reach me via email or by phone at 774-289-**** (preferably after 10AM) any day. Sincerely, Neil O'Donnell P.S. I will send in separate messages to prevent any trouble with sharing.

Good Afternoon! I'm writing about a problem I keep having with your Optimmune product. I have horses and my vet prescribed Optimmune for her serious eye problem. She will be on this product for the rest of her life. She is to be given this eye ointment 2 times a week in both eyes. I will be going through these tiny tubes for a long time. Not only is it expensive and small but it also is very watery consistency which means you have to put it in the refrigerator. So half the time I forget to take it down to the barn with me, I can't keep it at the barn because it just melts and runs out of the tube. Or it freezes and breaks the tube, so I have no way to keep it from running everywhere. I also use Terramycin for other eye issues in my other horses and it does just fine. never melts, never wastes. I'm wondering if you can fix the base you put this medicine in? I'm a single mom and this is a hardship to keep having to work so hard to make this medicine works. I'm wondering if you would consider a different formula that works?

Merck & Co. health care insurance benefit claim denied

Our health insurance was provided by Merck & Co. part of a benefit package and I was one of the dependent on the insurance. I suffered from Lyme disease and was unable to tolerate the oral antibiotic so after a long agony I was prescribed a conventional 28 days infusion treatment of antibiotic by an infectious disease specialist on February 2013. Most health insurances pay for this service. I had FDA validated ELISA tests demonstrating that overtime I had presence of significant increase in Lyme infection. The insurance refused to pay for the infusion denied my claim and as a result the treating physician dropped my care in the middle of the procedure, canceled my upcoming appointments and leaving me with an intravenous PICC line in my body. I went through the extensive review per insurance process. The total adjusted cost for the IV antibiotic was only about $1500. I appealed to Merck and their self funded insurance for the claim to be resolved. The claim went through 2 internal appeals where the insurance contracted another company which contracted external medical doctors to review the file and the $1500 claim was still denied. This process actually cost many more folds than the actual claim. Merck & Co. is an advocate for infectious diseases and produces HIV drugs on the market but is not ready to help a patient get a conventional treatment for Lyme disease, not including the fact that the insurance plan cost is deduced from the paycheck and is part of the employee benefit. I did reach out to Merck benefit center months ago and nothing happened. Merck pays for HIV treatments but has done nothing to pay a minimal claim for a conventional Lyme treatment. Merck logo states "be well" but that did not turned out that way.
