Now they tell us

It’s a little late to be telling millions of people who take drugs that many clinical trials are performed among males but the tested drug is later used by women whose hormones alter drug metabolism.  Drugs simply don’t work in women the same way as in men.  Heretofore, pharmaceutical companies have conducted trials among a population of men and after achieving FDA approval, promote the drug for women.  Some drugs have never been tested on women though they are widely prescribed for the fairer sex.
