Most of the time when a drug is withdrawn there are other drugs that are designed to treat the same disorder. Usually there are a few people who find that only that particular drug of the constellation of drugs available is helpful or is the only one that doesn't cause unwanted side effects.With Lotronex there isn't anything else out there that people can switch to, (there are other drugs that can be used off label for IBS that can be quite effective but most patients and doctors are not aware) thus there is a lot more noise about it.If the only disease-specific angina, ulcer, arthritis or asthma med was being pulled you'd see the same thing, but with those their are usually any number of alternatives for the vast majority of patients once the medication is pulled.K
