Quotes

"The hurt and strains will never go but she just makes it that much easier. Whereas before I had nothing to live for, now I do."
"Accept that this will be a totally different experience to the one you may have had without children. We spent more time in the family and circus type fields than watching the bands and changed our expectations and we were fine! In fact, we had a good time."
According to a GSK spokesperson, "Although having fully complied and not violated provisions of any law as applicable, GSK has taken necessary steps without prejudice to its rights to recall the batches of the paracetamol brands as directed by the FDA. The company has written to the FDA explaining compliance with law and have also sought clarification from NPPA on this issue”."
Says Hasit Joshipura, managing director, GSK, "Besides this, the mass specialty business recorded a market competitive growth in the prescriber base which has resulted in benefits to patients with Augmentin, an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections, such as sinusitis, pneumonia and bronchitis gaining significantly in market share. To address health concerns in hypothyroidism, two additional forms of Eltroxin have also been launched coupled with an awareness campaign on congenital hypothyroidism."
