Bart Simpson takes Oxytocin? Not Quite but Close

December 2, 2010 Oxytocin In The News Comments Off

The other night I received an e-mail, “Bart Simpson was given oxytocin to help calm him down with his dog…not my usual nightly viewing!” At first I thought it was one of those spam messages that begin with the funny somewhat poetic statement but then turns to garble. No, this one came from one of my mentoring students, so I read it again. Then it made sense and I was like, “Holy cow…they are talking about oxytocin on The Simpsons!” Well not quite. … Continue Reading

Prairie vole study finds new drug that boosts oxytocin

Oxytocin Agonist?

by Jessica Wright

Love rules: Prairie voles, which mate for life, bond with their new mate faster after taking a drug that increases the levels of oxytocin in the brain. A drug already in clinical trials as a tanning compound raises brain levels of oxytocin — a hormone and neurotransmitter involved in social bonding — researchers reported Sunday at the Society for Neuroscience annual meeting in San Diego. Higher levels of oxytocin can help animals recognize their mates and turn to a friend for help, according to two posters presented at the meeting.

Will Big Pharma Take Over Oxytocin?

November 30, 2010 Oxytocin In The News Comments Off

Last night I was watching Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN and they were disclosing findings about pharmaceutical companies payments to physicians. According to the document more than $282 million dollars was paid out by big pharma companies between 2009-2010. A handful of the docs (43) to be exact were paid more than $200,000.00. Why are these doctors paid so much? Well obviously because they were providing such excellent quality care. NOT! They are paid to prescribe drugs that have not been recommended for the studied and approved purpose! That’s right, they are paid to prescribe drugs off label to children and adults. What’s this got to do with you? Well actually a lot. In the past month I’ve had at least ten parents report to me that their physician was not willing to write a prescription for oxytocin tablets because it was for off label use, thus too much liability. Horse shit! I think it’s more a matter of because they are not being asked to do it by a pharmaceutical rep who may or may not be educated (you don’t have to have a degree to be a pharmaceutical sales rep), but who most likely is backed by a large checkbook and has a passion for getting the doc to write more scripts. Why so passionate? Well of course because they too get bonuses and more pay, the more scripts the doctor writes! It’s a perfect script writing, money making storm in my opinion and the clouds ain’t gonna be clearing anytime soon! (Please don’t send me an e-mail about my grammar…I do it on purpose…duh!)
