Taking medication while breastfeeding, even taking something as common as Tylenol can be controversial. So what about parents on or who need to start taking medicine like Zoloft, Prozac or other psychotropic medications? Is it safe for both parent and new baby? Today we're going to talk all about postpartum anxiety and postpartum depression medication and breastfeeding. There are lots of thoughts, stigmas, and fears about this, so I wanted to get to the bottom of breastfeeding your child while taking any sort of mood stabilizing medication.  In today's episode of Yoga| Birth| Babies I invited Heather ONeal and Maureen Farrel both midwives, lactation professionals, and hosts of an amazing podcast called The Milk Minute (which I am so excited that I got to be on, so make sure you listen to that)! These ladies have so much amazing information and we get into the nitty gritty. They talk about different types of medication, more popular brands for perinatal folks, how these medicines come into breastmilk, and all about antidepressants and psychotropic medication while nursing.  If you are concerned about starting a medication like this, or maybe you're already on medication and you're considering breastfeeding your child or any sort of way of lactation, this conversation can help you have some clarity on the benefits and risks. Of course always, always, always check with your care provider as well! But if it's something that has just been lingering in your mind, I hope this conversation gives you some peace of mind.

Tips for helping your baby through teething

You don't think much about your teeth unless there's a problem. For babies who can't communicate yet with words, teething can be a difficult time. Their gums become inflamed and tender as the teeth get closer to the surface and they take time to erupt or fully break through the gums.Jade Elliott spoke with Pediatrician, Jenna Whitham, MD, Intermountain Healthcare, to discuss some tips for when your baby is teething.When will that first tooth appear?Babies typically don't have teeth when they're born, but on average babies get their first tooth at about six months of age. Typically, they have a complete set of 20 “baby” teeth by 30 months of age. The lower central incisors usually come in first and the molars last.Signs of teethingTeething is a process that all children experience. Prior to tooth eruption the gingiva or gums may appear blue-ish and swollen. The symptoms seen most consistently with children immediately prior to and right after a tooth erupts are: biting or putting their mouth on things, drooling, rubbing their gums and fussiness. Sometime children may show less interest in eating solid foods and have mild elevations in temperature.But teething does not cause thick congestion, severe diarrhea, vomiting, cough, fevers or inability to drink liquids/take formula. If your child is having these types of symptoms, call your baby's doctor to find out if you need to bring your baby in for a visit.Four simple ways to manage teething pain1.Teething toys may be used, but liquid filled teething rings should be chilled in the refrigerator, not the freezer). Be sure to sterilize in boiling water before use.2.Teething biscuits, crackers or cold food items like frozen yogurt or fruit popsicles may be used for children older than nine months who are used to eating solid foods.3.Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Advil or Motrin (ibuprofen) may be used for children over six months if needed, but you should verify correct dosage with your child's doctor.4.Distraction – play with your baby or take them outside or for a ride in the strollerWhitham does not recommend using topical medications containing Benzocaine (Oragel) due to risk of overuse or ingestion.Tips for breastfeeding once your baby has teethMost moms can keep breastfeeding without difficulty through tooth development. If baby bites, the feeding should be over immediately, baby will quickly learn that biting is not ok.What foods are appropriate as teeth emergeBabies as young as four months who have good head control can start pureed baby foods, and at six months we encourage parents to start solid food introduction. In fact, despite not having a full set of teeth, babies as young as nine months can “chew” solid foods by mashing bites with their jaw regardless of the number of teeth that have emerged.When to start brushing baby's teethI recommend parents start brushing baby's teeth with a soft bristled brush when they notice the first tooth emerge. I recommend using a fluoride containing children's toothpaste. Use a grain of rice sized amount or less depending on how many teeth are to be brushed. Make tooth brushing a twice daily habit.For some ideas to make brushing teeth fun, click here.Preventing Baby Bottle Tooth DecayYou can help prevent your baby from developing cavities or what is called Baby Bottle Tooth Decay or by beginning an oral hygiene routine within the first few days after birth. Start by cleaning your baby's mouth by wiping the gums with a clean gauze pad. This helps remove plaque that can harm erupting teeth.If you are bottle feeding, only give your baby a bottle with formula, breast milk or after one year of age, cow's milk, and avoid giving them sugary beverages like juice or soda. Infants should finish their bedtime and naptime bottle before going to bed and not fall asleep with a bottle in their mouth.Do babies need fluoride drops?This depends on where you live. A good resource for this information is your county health department web site.Intermountain Healthcare has pediatric dentists and adult dentists.It's important to establish care with a pediatric dentist by 18-24 month of age. Intermountain has pediatric dentists and family and special needs dentists.

Rev James Harden tells JT Pro-abortion politicians seem to be partnering with the mainstream media in order to silence pro-life organizations before the truth about the abortion industry's consumer fraud can get out. Women deserve to be given the information needed to make a truly informed decision. By hiding important health risks and silencing pro-life pregnancy centers, pro-abortion politicians and the abortion empire coerce women into getting abortions in order to further their own agendas and increase profits. In a post-Roe America, the abortion empire is continuing to deny women informed consent. In a similar way to how big tobacco obfuscated health and safety data, the abortion industry has been hiding important health and efficacy data from women. The chemical abortion businesses claim that “The Abortion Pill is Safer than Tylenol,” yet a study of women in Finland reports chemical abortion is 400% more dangerous than surgical abortion. Other side effects include undiagnosed ectopic pregnancies and potential for permanent infertility if the woman is not diagnosed as Rh negative. Women have a right to know the risks of having an abortion and all of their alternatives. The principle of informed consent is required for a woman to be truly autonomous. Yet, ironically, it is systematically disregarded by the abortion empire.

However, anticoagulant activities of curcumin have not been studied.  The anticoagulant properties of curcumin and its derivative (bisdemethoxycurcumin, BDMC) were determined by monitoring activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT), prothrombin time (PT) as well as cell-based thrombin and activated factor X (FXa) generation activities.  Data showed that curcumin and BDMC prolonged aPTT and PT significantly and inhibited thrombin and FXa activities. They inhibited the generation of thrombin or FXa. In accordance with these anticoagulant activities, curcumin and BDMC showed anticoagulant effect in vivo.  Surprisingly, these anticoagulant effects of curcumin were better than those of BDMC indicating that methoxy group in curcumin positively regulated anticoagulant function of curcumin. Therefore, these results suggest that curcumin and BDMC possess antithrombotic activities and daily consumption of the curry spice turmeric might help maintain anticoagulant status.   Probiotics may prevent breast cancer: Study Western University (Ontario), June 27, 2022   A new study has found probiotics may prove to be a critical factor in preventing breast cancer.   Dr Gregor Reid, the professor of microbiology, immunology and surgery at the Western University in Ontario, Canada, said the bacteria having the potential to abet breast cancer are present in the breasts of cancer patients, while beneficial bacteria are more abundant in healthy breasts.   In the study, Reid's PhD student Camilla Urbaniak obtained breast tissues from 58 women, who were undergoing lumpectomies or mastectomies for either benign (13 women) or cancerous (45 women) tumors as well as from 23 healthy women, who had undergone breast reductions or enhancements. Researchers found that women with breast cancer had elevated levels of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus epidermidis, two bacteria known to induce double-stranded breaks in DNA in HeLa cells, which are cultured human cells. They say the breaks are prone to errors, which can cause cancer to develop.   Health-promoting bacteria Lactobacillus and Streptococcus (lactic acid bacteria) were more abundant in women with healthy breasts, both are anti-carcinogenic.     'Mystical' psychedelic compound found in normal brains University of Michigan, June 27, 2022 In the past few years, thrill-seekers from Hollywood, Silicon Valley and beyond have been travelling to South America to take part in so-called Ayahuasca retreats. Their goal: to partake in a brewed concoction made from a vine plant Banisteriopsis caapi, traditionally used by indigenous people for sacred religious ceremonies. Drinkers of Ayahuasca experience short-term hallucinogenic episodes many describe as life-changing. The active ingredient responsible for these psychedelic visions is a molecule called dimethyltryptamine (DMT). For the first time, a team led by Michigan Medicine has discovered the widespread presence of naturally-occurring DMT in the mammalian brain. The finding is the first step toward studying DMT-- and figuring out its role -- within the brains of humans. "DMT is not just in plants, but also can be detected in mammals," says Jimo Borjigin, Ph.D., of the Department of Molecular and Integrative Physiology. Her interest in DMT came about accidentally. Before studying the psychedelic, her research focused on melatonin production in the pineal gland. In the seventeenth century, the philosopher Rene Descartes claimed that the pineal gland, a small pinecone-shaped organ located deep in the center of the brain, was the seat of the soul. Since its discovery, the pineal gland, known by some as the third eye, has been shrouded in mystery. Scientists now know it controls the production of melatonin, playing an important role in modulating circadian rhythms, or the body's internal clock.  The core idea seems to come from a documentary featuring the work of researcher Rick Strassman, Ph.D. with the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. In the mid-1990s, he conducted an experiment in which human subjects were given DMT by IV injection and interviewed after its effects wore off. In a documentary about the experiment, Strassman claims that he believed the pineal gland makes and secretes DMT. Borjigin sought to discover how and where DMT was synthesized.  They found DMT in other parts of the brain, including the neocortex and hippocampus that are important for higher-order brain functions including learning and memory." A paper published in 2018 by researchers in the U.K. purported that DMT simulates the near death experience, wherein people report the sensation of transcending their bodies and entering another realm.    Puffing curcumin may blast Alzheimer's Vanderbilt University, Jun 22, 2022   The new delivery method may be more effective than others in getting the compound past the blood-brain barrier and into the brain, where it can fight the plaque that leads to Alzheimer's.   Deep breaths of curcumin may be key to fighting Alzheimer's disease, according to a new study from Vanderbilt University. Curcumin, a compound in the spice turmeric, has a demonstrated ability to smash the plaques in the brain that lead to the neuron loss that causes Alzheimer's, according to the study's senior author,Wellington Pham, Ph.D The challenge, however, has been getting the curcumin into the brain. Pham and colleagues at Shiga University of Medical Science in Otsu, Japan, developed a new delivery strategy. They created a curcumin moleculte that could be tracked with an MRI, to be administered as an aerosol through a nebulizer. This method delivers the dose more directly to the brain than taking the compound orally and digesting it. After tests in mice, the team found that “delivery to the cortex and hippocampal areas is more efficient using aerosolized curcumin than intervenous injection in a transgenic mouse model of Alzheimer's disease,” said Pham.   Anti-anxiety medication limits empathetic behavior in rats University of Chicago, June 27, 2022   Rats given midazolam, an anti-anxiety medication, were less likely to free trapped companions because the drug lessened their empathy, according to a new study by University of Chicago neuroscientists.   The research, published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology, validates studies that show rats are emotionally motivated to help other rats in distress. In the latest study, rats treated with midazolam did not open the door to a restrainer device containing a trapped rat, although control rats routinely freed their trapped companions. Midazolam did not interfere with the rats' physical ability to open the restrainer door, however. In fact, when the restrainer device contained chocolate instead of a trapped rat, the test rats routinely opened the door. The findings show that the act of helping others depends on emotional reactions, which are dampened by the anti-anxiety medication.   "The rats help each other because they care," said Peggy Mason, PhD, professor of neurobiology at the University of Chicago. "They need to share the affect of the trapped rat in order to help, and that's a fundamental finding that tells us something about how we operate, because we're mammals like rats too."       7 Simple Ways to Unclog Your Arteries Naturally GreenMedInfo, June 23, 2022   Statistically, atherosclerosis (the progressive clogging of the arteries) is the #1 killer on the planet.  A complex process, involving autoimmunity, infection, dietary incompatibilities, and many known and unknown factors, it is – despite conventional medical opinion – entirely preventable, and in some cases reversible.   Here is the peer-reviewed, published research proving the fact: B Vitamins – yes, something as simple as adding a source of B-complex to your regimen can prevent the juggernaut of heart disease from taking your life prematurely. A doubled-blind, randomized study, published in 2005, in the journal Atherosclerosis found that a simple intervention using 2.5 mg folic acid, 25 mg Vitamin B6, and 0.5mg Vitamin B12 for 1 year, resulted in significant reductions in arterial thickness (as measured by intima media thickeness).[1] Even niacin ]or folic acid  alone has been show to have this effect in patients. [Note: Always opt for natural sources of the B-group vitamins, including probiotic supplementation (which produce the entire complement for you), or a whole food extract, versus synthetic or semi-synthetic vitamins which, sadly, predominate on the market today]. Garlic – as we have documented extensively previously, garlic can save your life. It has been found to regress plaque buildup in the arteries, among many other potentially life-saving health benefits.  Pomegranate – this super healing fruit has been found to regress plaque buildup in the arteries, as well as being demonstrated to provide dozens of validated health benefits, including replacing the function of the mammalian ovary! Fermented Cabbage – Kimchi, a Korean recipe, which includes fermented cabbage, hot pepper, and various other ingredients, including fermented fish, appears to stall the atherosclerotic process in the animal model.  Additionally, strains of good bacteria in kimchi have been found capable of degrading toxic chemicals that can additional bodily harm. L-Arginine: This amino acid is capable of preventing arterial thickening – up to 24% reduction! -- in the animal model. We have done an extensive literature review on arginine supplementation and have found that in over 30 studies demonstrating this fact addition to 150 known health benefits, it is capable of addressing the underlying dysfunction associated with cardiovascular disease: endothelial dysfunction, with no less than 20 studies proving this fact. Curcumin: the primary polyphenol in the Indian spice turmeric known as curcumin has been found to be an excellent cardioprotective, with over 30 studies demonstrating this fact. One study found that curcumin prevented damage to the arteries associated with blockage (neointima formation).  Sesame Seed: probably one of the most underappreciated super foods on the planet, sesame seed, which we have shown is as effective as Tylenol for arthritic pain, may be an excellent cardioprotective substance, ideally suited for preventing the progression of atherosclerosis. One animal study found it was capable of preventing atherosclerosis lesion formation.

How RxRevu is Fixing the Disconnect Between Your Doctor and Your Pharmacy

When your doctor prescribes a new medicine, there's a pretty good chance that some snafu will crop up before you get it filled. Either your pharmacy doesn't carry it, or your insurance provider won't cover it, or they'll say you need "prior authorization," or your out-of-pocket cost will be sky-high. The basic problem is that the electronic health record systems and e-prescribing systems at your doctor's office don't include price and benefit information for prescription drugs. All of that information lives on separate systems at your insurance company and your health plan's pharmacy benefit manager, or PBM. And that's the gap that a company called RxRevu is trying to fix. Harry's guest on today's show RxRevu CEO Kyle Kiser, who explains the work the company has done to bring EHR makers, insurers, and PBMs together to make drug cost and coverage information available at the point of care, so doctors and patients can shop together for the best drug at the best price.Please rate and review The Harry Glorikian Show on Apple Podcasts!

I'm Harry Glorikian, and this is The Harry Glorikian Show, where we explore how technology is changing everything we know about healthcare.If you live in the United States and you've ever had your doctor prescribe a new medication, you've probably had the following experience.You drive from the doctor's office to the pharmacy.And when you get there, you find out that the pharmacy doesn't carry that particular drug. Or that they do carry it, but your insurance provider doesn't cover it. Or your insurance does cover it, but they require prior authorization. Which means you have to get back in touch with your doctor and ask them to tell the insurance company that you really do need the medicine.Or you already have prior authorization, but you haven't met your annual deductible yet, so your out-of-pocket cost is much more than you expected.If any one of these problems crops up, the chances that you'll actually get your prescription filled on the day you need it go way down.And it's not uncommon for several of these snafus to happen all at once.Fundamentallythat's because the electronic health record systems and the electronic prescribing systems at your doctor's office don't include price and benefit information for prescription drugs.All of that information lives on separate systems at your insurance company and your health plan's pharmacy benefit manager, or PBM.And that's the gap that a company called RxRevu is trying to fix.My guest on today's show is the CEO of RxRevu, Kyle Kiser.We talked about the software they've built to make drug cost and coverage information available within the major EHR systemsWhen doctors can see in real time which drugs are covered, at what price, for a specific patient, it    obviously solves a huge pain point for patients, because it means they're more likely to get the drugs they need at an affordable price.But it also solves a big problem for doctors. Because, fairly or not, they're the ones who usually shoulder the blame when it turns out the medication they just prescribed is too expensive or isn't available.The kind of information RxRevu provides is going to be more and more important as the U.S. enters into an era of far greater price transparency, as mandated by the federal No Surprises Act, which went into effect on January 1 of this year.RxRevu is based in Denver, Colorado, and I reached Kyle Kiser at his home in Seattle, Washington. Here's our full conversation.Harry Glorikian: Kyle, welcome to the show.Kyle Kiser: Thanks, Harry. Happy to be here.Harry Glorikian: So, you know, we were just talking. You're in Seattle and I'm in Boston. I don't think we could be much farther apart when it comes to this particular country. So but let's start with a little bit of background, right. So. You're the CEO of RxRevu. And can you tell us a little bit about sort of the origin story about how you got started here? I mean, I understand your co-founder, Dr. Kevin O'Brien, had an interesting experience trying to get prescriptions filled for his mother, Lucy, but. What's the rest of that story? What did that story reveal to you about what's broken or missing in the way that doctors prescribes medicines or, you know, where the way that maybe payers approve prescription?Kyle Kiser: Yeah, absolutely. So a little background on Kevin's story. Kevin was initially inspired to do this because he wanted to solve a problem for his mom. She had an outsized out-of-pocket spend for meds. Like any good son, he wanted to help solve a problem for his mom. He used his expertise to find sort of ways to save on those medications, and that inspired him to start doing that in his clinic for his patients more comprehensively. So he was, you know, way ahead of his time and putting in all of this extra effort to really help find prescription options for patients that they could afford more easily. And that was the initial inspiration for what we've done today, which is connecting the point of care and clinical decision making with costs and coverage information that's real time and patient specific and location specific and moment in time specific, because all those things matter as inputs into a price.Kyle Kiser: So, you know, really the challenge we've been focused on is, is largely that, you know, the clinical decision making process has been pretty, pretty much disconnected, right, from marketplace information. So, you know, anything that impacts the purchasing of that care. And that was okay in a world where deductibles were low, formularies were relatively inexpensive and simple. But that world has changed dramatically over the last 10 to 20 years, right, as consumer driven healthcare has become the way of the world. And first dollar risk is now at the feet of the patient. It's that patients are now demanding that providers can consider not just what's best from a clinical perspective, but also set expectations around costs, set expectations around any restrictions that exist, and be an advocate for access to care. And the problem we're solving. We're building an access network. And within that access network, we help drive affordability and speed to care for patients. And we're doing that with a number of stakeholders. But at a high level, that's what we're trying to accomplish.Harry Glorikian: Well, you know, it's interesting, right? You know, entrepreneurship 101, solve a real need, right? So that there's a market there because everybody wants it. But so, I mean, look, I think everyone in the United States has probably had experiences similar to Dr. O'Brien's mom. I mean, you get to the pharmacy, you find out that the medication your doctor prescribed isn't covered by your plan, or you find out that the co-pay is outrageously high. But behind their personal experiences, I bet most people don't have a concept of how big and widespread this problem is. You know, you have any maybe some statistics that might illustrate the scale of the problem or how much money is wasted in the medical system because of these disconnects. I mean, I'm wondering how many prescriptions get abandoned or how many patients don't get the meds they need.Kyle Kiser: Yeah, I mean, at a. A macro level, you know, the prescription drug market makes just over makes up, you know, just over a half a trillion. Right. And, you know, estimates are that a third, even as much as half of that is waste and waste in the form of, you know, medications that aren't taken as prescribed or aren't delivering the right outcomes. I don't it's hard to find actually a a stakeholder in the supply chain that's delivered more value than meds themselves. I mean, if you think about, you know, the innovation in that world over the last 30 years, it's second to none. But the, you know, the supply chain within which they exist is complicated and it's hard to navigate. And the consequences of that is waste. And, you know, a ton of administrivia and friction. And frankly, patients bear the brunt of that. Ultimately, it's health plans and PBMs and risk bearing entities making rules on one end. It's providers and care teams making clinical decisions on the other end. And both of those processes are largely disconnected. And the only way that that gets harmonized in any way is a patient advocating for themselves. And we just fundamentally don't believe it should happen that way. What we're building is the connectivity between those stakeholders so that whether it's a provider at the point of care making the decision, whether it's a care team member trying to help you overcome a prior, or whether it's a patient trying to advocate for themselves using their own technology, we want to put real time, patient-specific, moment in time specific information in their hands to drive affordability and speed to care for that patient, no matter where they are in the care continuum.Harry Glorikian: Yeah. I mean, so this lack of prescription cost data, I mean at the point of care feels like a real canonical example of deep systemic problems with the with origins that are buried like deep in at least three of these complex organizations. Providers, payers and EHR makers. I mean, once you guys decided what the problem you wanted to fix was, how the hell did you figure out where to like -- okay, let's start here and let's move forward, right? Because.Kyle Kiser: Yeah.Harry Glorikian: Not trivial.Kyle Kiser: No, it's exactly the right observation because ultimately what we're building is a multi-sided network. And what's difficult about building a multi-sided network is, you know, users on one end, in this case, providers, aren't going to engage if it doesn't have the appropriate information in it. And the data sources, the ability to capture that appropriate information, they don't want to provide that data to you unless you have the appropriate users. So you get stuck in this chicken or the egg problem. And that's job one in growing this business, is to overcome that chicken or the egg problem. And the way we went about that was we worked really closely with health systems, with provider organizations, primarily because that's where the trust exists, is that ultimately patients seek out their provider and their care team to answer these questions. And so we worked closely with them as strategic partners and brought some of them in as investors in the company and aggregated a group of meaningful collaborators on the health system side, which then helped us bring PBMs and payers to the table to say, how do we solve these problems together? And that's that's sort of how we got out of the gate.Harry Glorikian: So I mean, tell me if we could dig a little into I think the product is called SwiftRx, if I remember correctly, but at a high level. You know, if you could describe for listeners, what is it? How does it work? And. Where does it fit in relation to the overall system?Kyle Kiser: Sure. Yes. So SwiftRx Direct is the product you're describing. What it provides is, is that real time, patient specific, location specific, moment in time specific information in the provider's native ordering workflow. So we are a data network that's powering a native feature inside the EMR that provides that insight while providers are selecting medications. So a typical flow would look like, a provider selects a medication. They then place that into a pending status in the software that they use. When that happens, we're able to gain visibility to that choice. We send that transaction out to our network of data sources, payers, PBMs, etc.. And what we get back is the price that is patient specific. We have formulary insights, so prior auth, quantity, limit, step therapy, those sorts of things. Those are also patient specific. And then most importantly, we get back alternatives. And those alternatives come in two forms. They're either a lower cost medication or a lower cost pharmacy where the patient can fulfill that medication. And that's sort of the core information that we then render back into the e-prescribing workflow. And we only interrupt those providers' workflows, or we and our partners only interrupt those providers workflows, when there's relevant information to consider. Because as I'm sure, you know, being deep in this world, provider engagement stuff -- you really have to be thoughtful about when, when is the appropriate time to intervene and when, when do we want to sort of get out of the way and make sure that when we are intervening, it's meaningful and understood to be meaningful?Harry Glorikian: Yeah. So I'm going to I mean, I heard a lot of what you said. I'm I want to maybe summarize all the. A few of these areas that people run into problems. But to try to understand sort of what are the big problems you had to solve to get it to really work? Because I'm just trying to get my head around the magnitude of the data headache here. Right. So if if you'll allow me, I'll just try to break it down into parts and then you can tell me how you're bridging all of these. So for one thing, there's the patient specific data about what kind of insurance each patient has and what level of benefits they have. And none of that is stored in the EHR at the clinic. As far as I know, typically the EHR would only list the patient's group number, subscription number or maybe the RxBin number. And then separate from all that, every insurance has a formula of drugs that will cover and sometimes a, you know, a schedule of different copay amounts for those drugs. And those formularies change every year and even more often. Right. And then there's a patient's actual prescription data which may live in their EMR or may live in a different system at the pharmacy. And then on top of that, there's this obscure black box system of prior authorization criteria that insurers may use to deny a prescription if they don't feel like paying for it. So the fact that the system is so fragmented is a familiar story to anybody who listens to this show. But tell me, you know, how on earth you were able to sort of get all this data under one roof, so to speak? You know, is there a specific architecture of the Swift system that makes you good at collecting all of this changing data and presenting it to the providers in real time?Kyle Kiser: Yeah. The only other element I'd add to your complexity salad is also benefit design, right. Is that yeah, the, the out-of-pocket cost can be and is dramatically different based on where you are in your coverage. If you're a commercial member with a high deductible, you're bearing the, you know, the in-network negotiated rate inside that deductible. And that changes pretty dramatically once you reach a deductible. Or if you're a Medicare member, there's the donut hole. And all of those things are also inputs and complexity to add to this. So to answer your question, it's really working closely with the stakeholders that control those, that are the source of that data. Right. You really can't get to an accurate price without working with those with those data sources specifically. So we work closely with the PBM, with the payer, and we do more or less a mock adjudication. So the same type of adjudication activity that happens on their end when a patient arrives at the point of sale is happening when a provider is making a prescribing decision in this case.Harry Glorikian: I mean, I can tell you, like the last time I had to sit and choose an insurer, and you would think that I'd be better at this than most, I remember having to take two Tylenol, because when I got done, because I thought my head was going to explode. And I could honestly not say to you I made the best choice. It was at the end, it was almost like a Hail Mary, I guess with all the complexity. And the other thing that I keep thinking about is when I used to watch, I think if you have kids, you've watched The Incredibles and there's a point in the show where the manager says they're penetrating inside of our systems to understand how to get how to get the system to pay them or whatever. It feels like it's that level of complexity. And you really need a sophisticated system to sort of bring all that information together to make sense of it all.Kyle Kiser: Yeah, that's true. And it is it is dynamic, it is highly variable and it's very different from administrator to administrator. Right. And a specific example of that, right, is that responses we get back are not across the board consistent, that here's an error and here's what that error means. And that error message is consistent from health plan to health plan. That's just not the way the world works, right. The error messages are specific to those claim systems because ultimately on the other side of the fence, these are mainframe systems in some cases that were designed decades ago that they've then created a layer to expose to the outside world, in this case us. And, you know, it's not simple work for us or for them. So I think the thing also to point out here is that there's a lot of effort from the payer- rrPBM community to make this accessible and to sort of change the way they're doing business and to change the way their technology works to enable some of these things, which is which is progress and should be commended for sure.[musical interlude]Harry Glorikian: Let's pause the conversation for a minute to talk about one small but important thing you can do, to help keep the podcast going.

So if I'm not mistaken, both Epic and Cerner have made it possible for providers to embed SwiftRx into their EHR. So if I understand it correctly, it even comes as a standard part of Cerner now. So those are two of the biggest EHR providers in the US.Kyle Kiser: And Athena.Harry Glorikian: And Athena, so question: how did you make that happen?Kyle Kiser: Well, you know, we've got a great team and the team executed ultimately. We worked really hard on those relationships. And I think it's both working with the right customers in small ways in the early days that leads to working with these types of partners and bigger ways. And frankly, some of the open programs at some of these places led to this. So early days, we were working in kind of the more open developer type programs with these EMR partners. We were working closely with some of their customers. Banner was one of our first customers. UC Health was one of our first customers, both a Cerner and an Epic user respectively, and, you know, is working in small ways to solve these problems together with those health systems that led us both to interacting with PBMs and ultimately building these enterprise level relationships with the EMR. It's, you know, it's, it's earning the trust, it's delivering for these customers and then earning the right to do this at scale. And we're to a point now where we'll do almost 100 million of these transactions this year. And it's you know, it's grown fast.Harry Glorikian: Yeah, that's a lot of that's a lot of data flowing back and forth. But so let's ask the money question, like, what's the business model? Who ends up paying you? Is it the provider buying SwiftRx as an add on to the existing EHR or how does that work?Kyle Kiser: It's the risk bearing entity ultimately. So think about that as payer and PBM. In most cases, there are cases where we work with health systems and there are some things we do that that are either channel related or related to specific needs that they have when they're that risk bearing entity. But at a high level, we follow the risk and we want to work with the customer that is bearing that risk because ultimately they're the ones that stand to benefit from an optimized prescription choice.Harry Glorikian: Okay. So that everybody gets a clear idea of like, can you give me a before and after picture at a clinic that brings SwiftRx into their EHR?Kyle Kiser: Sure. Yeah. So. You know, this is probably an experience many of many of the listeners have had. Right. Is that. Before such acts you interact with your physician, they diagnose you with whatever condition they've perceived. They select a medication. They route it to the pharmacy. You go to the pharmacy and cross your fingers that all of the requirements have been met. And that is at a price that you can afford if there is a prior or if that's too expensive. When you arrive at that site of fulfillment, you discover that, right, if there's a prior that's not been completed, then you've got to go through that prior authorization process and you're not picking up that prescription today. If it's a price you can't afford, you got to figure out how to pay for it. And there's a variety of ways that that happens. But ultimately, it's up to the patient to figure those things out. In a world where SwiftRx is installed, the difference is, as that prescription decision is happening, we notify the prescriber of the patient's out-of-pocket cost. In some cases, even the plan cost associated with that choice. Any restrictions that exist like prior or quantity limit or step therapy. And we also notify them of any lower cost alternatives. So in many cases, simple changes make big differences in in the out-of-pocket cost. And it might even be something as simple as, time release metformin can be hundreds if not $1,000, and regular old metformin is four bucks and has been four bucks for decades.Kyle Kiser: So it's some of those almost unintentional, I hesitate to call them errors on the provider side. It's just they're making choices based on their own sort of clinical expertise. But they don't they don't know these things, right? They don't know how a time release metformin might be reimbursed for one of the ten or 12 payers that they may see in a given clinic day. So it's just providing that insight upfront so that they can make those decisions and understand the trade offs. Is time release really important or is this patient going to be fine? And is that out-of-pocket costs for a med going to prevent them from being able to actually take that medication? And as a result, they're not going to receive any of the clinical benefit. So ultimately, the $4 option is probably better. So it's really connecting that clinical decision making process with all of the complexity that exists on the payer and PBM end so that we can get the decision right the first time. And when the patient shows up at the pharmacy, they know how much is going to cost, they feel comfortable that they can pay for it and they're either aware of the prior auth and have already completed the requirements or have some, some level of expectations set to how to complete those requirements.Harry Glorikian: So for all the reasons we've been discussing, doctors traditionally have been able to stay somewhat separated or maybe called it shielded from discussions about drug prices. I mean, they just prescribe a drug, leave it to their office staff or the patient or their pharmacy to figure out whether it's covered. But now, for organizations that are using your system that are built into their EHR, a clinical encounter, it can involve essentially going shopping in real time for the best drug at the best price. I mean, in your experience, how do doctors like being pulled into these decisions? I mean, I can see how it be great for patients, but I wonder if doctors are equally excited.Kyle Kiser: You know, one of the things that's been the most surprising to us around this subject, specifically patient out-of-pocket cost, is one of the most requested pieces of information in a primary care clinic, because it's so complex and it creates so many callbacks and it creates so much patient dissatisfaction. Because ultimately the patient's going to, at some level, hold that prescriber accountable for that decision. And if it's really expensive med there's an assumption that the provider knew that already or should have known that, whether that's true or not. And so what that's resulted in is primary care providers want this information, they want it. They want to have this at their fingertips when they're making decisions. It's the world certainly changed in that way. So I think, you know, it's becoming a part of the standard of care being able to consider cost. Because to the point earlier, the only medication that works is the one the patient can afford. And so you really have to consider those things because of the way our sort of health care payment infrastructure exists. Right. There's just, patients are bearing a dramatic portion of that cost these days and got to consider that as a part of the way you deliver care.Harry Glorikian: I mean, I almost feel like your company is is pushing. These providers and payers and to fix the prescription benefit system or making them more efficient or compatible.Kyle Kiser: Yeah. I think there is a, I maybe describe it as rationalizing. R I don't think that a clinical team and a PBM and PNT committee at a health system have dramatically different opinions on what medications should be prescribed, for what conditions. The friction exists in that they're making those decisions in isolation of one another. So I think I see our role as a connector to help, you know, in a value based world, the incentives start to align between risk bearing entity and health system. And many times the health system becomes the risk bearing entity fully. And so our goal is to empower providers to understand those things in real time, to manage the complexity for them, only engage them with the information that makes a difference in the decision they're trying to make and ultimately create a better experience for the patient, a better outcome for the patient, and a less burdensome process for the provider organization.Harry Glorikian: So as we all know, I mean, the American medical system is famous for sending patients surprise bills after clinical encounter or an emergency room visit, right. Where a bandage or an aspirin can carry some crazy prices that I've seen. And I'm trying to project onto where you are as a company and where you want to go. I mean, now that you've tackled the rrtransparency in drug pricing, which I would honestly like to see everywhere, because I think I've heard my wife complain all the time when she encounters some astronomical price. Right. Can you imagine trying to tackle or bring greater transparency to other medical costs, such as maybe a surgical procedure or hospital supplies. I mean, is there anything that you've learned about prescription benefits that's transferable to all these other types of care?Kyle Kiser: Absolutely. Yeah. We're already moving beyond prescriptions today and focused on labs, radiology services, generally. And see the dynamics of the payer-PBM end of the market five or six years ago as it relates to pharmacy real time benefit shaping up much in the same way around medical benefits. That payers are thinking about these problems in the same ways and are showing initiative and prioritizing putting this information at the point of care for for all of the reasons that we just described on the drug side are true in many ways on the medical side. So, yes, absolutely. That's where we're headed. And the regulatory tailwinds are there in a new way. Right. If you think about in the last 12 months, there's been more price transparency legislation than in the last 30 years. And that, combined with the no surprise billing legislation, really creates this this kind of pre EOB requirement for each of the stakeholders and they got to solve that problem. And we see ourselves as really well positioned to be a part of that solution.Harry Glorikian: Yeah. I mean, you know, it there was no way. I mean, the Affordable Care Act got put into place and there were certain things in there that just there was no way that you were going to be able to do that without some level of transparency and understanding what's going on.Kyle Kiser: Yeah. Yeah, that's right. But even further, right, before the end of last year there were price transparency regulations for health systems, for providers, for payers. And then the no surprise billing legislation has in it a component that says, you know, before you deliver care, you got to be able to give an estimation of cost. And so all of those things sort of work together from a regulatory perspective to start to drive the market in that direction. So absolutely, it's coming everywhere. It's going to be, it's going to be a part of the way that every health care decision is made in the future. And it's just a matter of time before that's the case.Harry Glorikian: Yeah. It's interesting because I have lots of conversations with, you know, lots of different people. And they I don't think they understand that. If you don't have that level of transparency, you truly don't have a competitive environment, right? You can't make choices because you don't have the information to be able to make that choice.Kyle Kiser: That's exactly right. Without it, there is no marketplace. Right. That's probably overstated. It's without it, it's a dysfunctional marketplace. And with transparency, we will start to see real competitive dynamics emerge. And I'm hopeful for that. Sunlight's the greatest antiseptic.Harry Glorikian: Oh, I totally agree. I mean, for me, it's always been like a walled garden. Like, you know, either you're here or, you know, you're out of luck, right? Because you don't have any information so you can go across the street. So. So. I guess I should be asking. I've probably reached the limit of my knowledge on the subject matter, but like, is. Is there anything I haven't asked you or anything, you know, that you would want to add to the conversation that would be enlightening to the people that are listening?Kyle Kiser: Yeah, well, the only thing I would sort of make sure we reframe a little bit is that this isn't necessarily about price transparency. Price transparency is a component of providing access to care for patients, and that's ultimately what we continually focus on inside of our company, that price is an input. Affordability is an input. Convenience is an input. The ability to actually receive the prescription is an input. We're ultimately trying to make sure that affordability and speed to care lead to better outcomes. And that's an access story, not just a price transparency story. And so that's the only sort of reframe that I'd offer is that ultimately this has to lead to better health, people getting healthier, getting the care they need, being able to afford the medications that they need. And that's the work. And we're going to stop at nothing to make sure that that happens.Harry Glorikian: Excellent. Well, it was great talking to you, Kyle. I wish you great success because, I mean, whenever I talk to anybody, I'm like, I know I could be benefiting from all of this, so I want everybody to be successful.Kyle Kiser: We appreciate the well-wishes and we'll be working hard to ensure that that's the case.Harry Glorikian: Excellent.

Jan & Sarah are co founders of World Spine Outreach. A non for profit organization that has been a labor of love for 13 years. It started when Sarah, a physicians Orthopedic assistant & Jan, a head nurse of Neuro surgery in OR, traveled with hospital group. After going on a trip of 14 days, with 7 days of surgery's they felt the need to have to do more. In 2008, they streamlined this idea & applied for 501c3. Searching for a group to partner with, they came across the Butterfly foundation. Butterfly foundation is a small group who's focus was in Dominican Republic. After teaming up the Butterfly foundation, they saw the lack of equipment as well as education in DR. Jan & Sarah started to focus on teaching. They along with the surgeons taught the residents to sterilize & how to sew, among other things. Since then they along their team have performed 600-700 surgeries. Butterly project loved what was happening, that they asked Sarah, Jan & team to come to Vietnam. They would travel to Vietnam for about 5 years. The came across the same challenges in Vietnam, with lack of education, funding….. Word got around. They were asked to visit China. They went to Poland. During one of their trips, Jan met world renowned Dr. Lenke. They have worked on a very tight budget. The volunteers have given time as well as & paid their way. Instrumentation companies have donated equipment .5 - 2 million dollars worth of instruments. 1 surgery will often taken at least 8 hours. Candidate's are screened. This is limiting with how many patients the team can take on. Sometimes they will have 75 patients, 25 of which will only be seen. These are often cases where they don't have any prior screening, there is no care. Sometimes the girls are outcasts, with their families pushing them the side. They also more cases with males, unlike the states. Sarah & Jan share a story of young boy who wasn't in pain & yet he almost died from Scoliosis. Other stories are of children they met with curves of 110 degrees. With 110 degree curve the children are smiling. “It's like they won the lottery.” During one their first trips, they realized they didn't have any pain medication for the patients, not even Tylenol. The patients are home after 2/3 days post surgery. Recently Sarah & Jan got to see the patients at a reunion. They track patients post surgery but with language & internet limits makes communication challenging. In order to volunteer, you must have a purpose to serve. Example, they need help with interruptors. The World Spine team is a team of passionate people who give the time from across the country. For more on how to listen, listen to their story.

Dr. Hernan Bazan is the CEO and Co-Founder of South Rampart Pharma and focuses on finding a new way to treat acute and chronic pain with a drug that has no expectation for abuse and is not toxic to the liver, kidneys, or cardiovascular system. Hernan explains, "This is a tremendous unmet need in that there really has been no innovation in the pain space for over 50 years. Tylenol itself, acetaminophen, Tylenol was born in the '40s and the early '50s and worked by actually someone that was at the NIH that came to visit us a few times, a very well renowned neuroscientist. And he really discovered it incidentally, looking for another pathway, but we won't go into that. And that was adopted by McNeil Laboratories, and then eventually Johnson & Johnson." "And then, in the '60s and '70s, non-steroidals, non NSAIDs, were marketed as Advil and ibuprofen, and a bunch of NSAIDs were derived. And these are very good medicines for preventing inflammation and treating pain in the short term. The challenge with both of these classes of pain meds is that they have risks." "And then the third class, obviously, everybody knows about opioids and how they were marketed in the '90s." @SR_Pharma #Pain #AcutePain #Analgesic #Acetaminophen #Opioid #NSAID #Nontoxic #NonOpioid #NewOrleans southrampartpharma.com Listen to the podcast here

Unsolved: The Chicago Tylenol Murders

Today on the train we figured we'd go back to the land of unsolved true crime as we like to do, on occasion.  So, as with all these unsolved true crime episodes, we like to bring these crimes back into the limelight and bring the stories back into the conversation. Once these stories stop getting talked about any chance of solving them goes by the wayside. This one is a strange one for sure. We're talking a look at what are called the Chicago Tylenol murders.    The Chicago Tylenol murders were a series of poisoning deaths resulting from drug tampering in the Chicago metropolitan area in 1982. The victims had all taken Tylenol-branded acetaminophen capsules that had been laced with potassium cyanide. To date, no suspect has been charged or convicted of the poisonings.   The incidents led to reforms in the packaging of over-the-counter substances and to federal anti-tampering laws. The actions of Johnson & Johnson to reduce deaths and warn the public of poisoning risks have been widely praised as an exemplary public relations response to such a crisis.   There were 7 victims total from the original incident with even more deaths resulting from copycat incidents after the fact.    Let's first take a look at the victims.   MARY KELLERMAN   September 29, 1982   The first victim was 12-year-old Mary Kellerman, a seventh grader at Addams Junior High School in Schaumburg and living in Chicago's northwest suburbs. She enjoyed horseback riding and earned extra money after school babysitting for neighborhood children. Mary woke up early in the morning hours of September 29, 1982. Feeling ill, she took an Extra Strength Tylenol to help with a runny nose and sore throat. At 7 am, her parents found Mary unconscious on the bathroom floor. Her parents rushed her to the hospital where Mary was pronounced dead by 9:30 am. Her death was first assumed to be a stroke, but the toxicology report and connection to other deaths soon proved it to be a murder.  She left behind her parents Dennis and Jeanna M. Kellerman. Mary Kellerman was laid to rest in the Saint Michael The Archangel Catholic Cemetery.   ADAM, STANLEY AND THERESA JANUS   September 29, 1982   Twenty-seven-year-old Adam Janus was the next person to die after taking Extra Strength Tylenol. He was the father of two young children, and living in Arlington Heights. The day of his death, Adam thought he was coming down with a cold. He stayed home from work that day. On his way home from picking up his children from preschool, he stopped at a Jewel grocery store and purchased a bottle of Extra Strength Tylenol.   "After taking several capsules, he walked into his bedroom, collapsed and fell into a coma. He died in the emergency room at Northwest Community Hospital." — SARA OLKON, The Chicago Tribune   After the death of Adam Janus, his family gathered at his home to mourn and begin making funeral arrangements. Stanley, Adam's brother, and his wife Theresa (Adam's sister-in-law), were visiting with family when they complained of headaches and looked for a nearby remedy. In Adam's bathroom cabinet, they found the same bottle of Extra Strength Tylenol. Moments after taking the disguised cyanide capsules, Stanley and then Theresa collapsed.  Fearing carbon monoxide poisoning, the rest of the Janus family was taken to hospital for observation. They were given their last rites, but did not die.  The Januses were survived by Janus parents Tadeusz "Ted" and Alojza Janus, niece Monica Janus, brother Joseph Janus, Theresa's brother Robert Tarasewicz, her mother Helena Tarasewicz, and a host of other bereaved family members and friends. A joint funeral was held for the three Janus family victims on October 5, 1982, with the Archbishop Joseph Bernardun presiding. Adam Janus was laid to rest at Maryhill Catholic Cemetery & Mausoleum in Niles, Cook County, Illinois. Stanley and Theresa Janus were laid to rest at Saints Peter and Paul Cemetery in Naperville, DuPage County, Illinois.   MARY REINER   September 29, 1982   Mary Reiner was happily married to her husband Ed, and the couple had just welcomed their fourth child into the world. She used Tylenol to relieve symptoms of post-birth discomfort.  Like the other victims, Mary Reiner collapsed shortly after taking the fatally disguised dose of cyanide. Mary's daughter, Michelle Rosen, was just eight years old when she witnessed her mother's poisoning, collapse, and death. Mary's husband arrived at the scene shortly after: "I came home right after she had fallen on the floor. An ambulance came [and rushed her to Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield]. I'm not gonna say a whole lot more than that." — Ed Reiner, as quoted by Chicago Magazine "Mary Magdalene Reiner grew up in Villa Park and was "100 percent Irish." Rosen remembers her being a good cook and preparing corned beef and egg noodles for the family. She also loved playing softball, the drums, and bowling." — James Sotonoff, Daily Herald   Her death left husband Ed Reiner to mourn, and four children, including an infant son to grow up without a mother.   MARY MCFARLAND   September 30, 1982   Thirty-year-old Mary McFarland was working at her job at the Illinois Bell in Lombard, when she felt a bad headache coming on. According to her brother Jack Eliason, Mary took Tylenol in the back room of her workplace, and died shortly after. He told the Associated Press:   "...she went in the back room and took I don't know how many Tylenol — at least one, obviously — and within minutes she was on the floor."    She was a single mother, working and raising two young sons at the time of her death. Her two boys Ryan and Bradley McFarland, now grown, survive Mary McFarland. She was also survived by parents John and Jane Eliason, brother Jack Eliason and sister-in-law Nancy Eliason, and siblings. A granddaughter she never had the chance to meet was named Mary in her honor.    PAULA PRINCE   October 1, 1982   Paula Jean Prince, 35, was a flight attendant who worked for United Airlines. On the day of her death, she flew from Las Vegas to O'Hare International Airport. She purchased Tylenol from a Walgreens on her way home. An ATM surveillance camera captured the purchase.  Exhausted from a long flight, Paula took Tylenol to relieve the symptoms of a cold as she got ready for bed. She was found dead in her apartment, and an open bottle of Tylenol was found on her bathroom counter. While other victims of the Tylenol Scare were from the suburbs of Chicago, Paula was the only victim to live in the city. The deaths of Mary Kellerman, Adam Janus, Stanley Janus, Theresa Janus, Mary Reiner, Mary McFarland and Paula Prince shared many similarities. All turned to Tylenol, a trusted, safe and common over-the-counter drug, to relieve minor ailments, and lost their lives. Their stories are almost universally relatable. Who hasn't taken a Tylenol for quick relief from a headache, cold or other aches and pain? The ordinariness of the circumstances coupled with the heinousness of the crime created a wave of panic in the Chicago metropolitan area. Paula's funeral was held in Omaha at the same time as the Janus family victims, on October 5, 1982. She was laid to rest at Calvary Cemetery in Omaha, Douglas County, Nebraska. She was survived by her father Lloyd Prince, mother Margaret Prince, and siblings Carol Lisle, Margaret Conway and Robert Prince.    All of the victim information was taken from an article on beyondthedash.com   Next up let's look at the suspects…what few there actually were!   First up is James William Lewis. Here is what we know about Lewis as it pertains to this case:   Worked as a tax accountant   Also known to be a fraudster   Handwriting was positively matched to that of two letters sent to Johnson & Johnson and the White House, the Johnson & Johnson letter demanding an end to the poisonings, The White House letter threatening to bomb it and continue the Tylenol poisonings   Was at New York City with his wife during the time of the murders, left the Chicago area in the early days of September 1982.   Was able to show the authorities how an offender could, hypothetically, tamper Tylenol pills with Cyanide. Claimed he did it for helping out. This is typical of other offenders, such as Ted Bundy   An unidentified man seen in a CCTV footage of one of the affected drugstores bears a striking resemblance to him. The man appears to have been watching victim Paula Prince, who is also shown in the footage, buying the tainted pills.   Sentenced to 20 years in prison for extortion and letter and credit-card fraud, but served only 13 years of the sentence and was paroled in 1995   In February 2009 his Cambridge, Mass., home was raided by the FBI; agents were seen leaving with boxes of evidence and an Apple computer.   In 2010, Lewis, then 63, and his wife, Leann, appeared at a closed hearing at the Middlesex Superior Court Wednesday to determine whether they have to submit to the grand jury's subpoena, which was a request to submit DNA, according to sources close to the case.   The judge ordered them to comply with the subpoena and both James and Leann Lewis turned over samples, according to investigators.    But Lewis has always maintained his innocence in the actual poisonings of the Tylenol capsules. When asked about the drawings, he has claimed he was only trying to be a "good citizen" by giving authorities detailed sketches depicting how someone might go about injecting cyanide into Tylenol capsules.   "I could tell you how Julius Caesar was killed, but that does not mean I was the killer," Lewis told the Chicago Tribune in a 1992 jailhouse interview.   Pressed as to why he and his wife would have been subpoenaed for DNA if they are innocent, Lewis declined to comment.    According to the Daily Herald in Chicago in in 201⁰0 new scientific technology available to analyze a smudge on one of the original Tylenol bottles could help establish a link between Lewis and the crimes.   The paper, quoting an ex-state official involved in the original investigation whose name was not mentioned because he agreed to speak only with a guarantee of anonymity, said that "advances in DNA and fingerprint technology may make the 'smudge' evidence relevant today."   In receding to whether all of the evidence collected could've bring about a trial:          "The evidence investigators presented to prosecutors so far remains circumstantial, but it could be bolstered by statements from potential witnesses who have declined to sit for interviews, according to sources close to the investigation.   So far, however, no decision has been made on whether to give the grand jury a green light. Sources say both state's attorneys from Cook and DuPage counties have been briefed on the evidence. The investigation, handled by an FBI-led task force of law-enforcement agents, still centers on the same man: James W. Lewis, sources tell the Sun-Times."   In a lengthy chronicle of the case for the Reader, Joy Bergmann paints Lewis as a suspicious character… but not, aside from his extortion, necessarily suspicious as the Tylenol killer:   Lewis maintained he was a "political prisoner," a "scapegoat," and an "all-purpose monster…fathered by the wild-eyed hyperventilated imaginations of two brutal men, Tyrone Fahner and Daniel K. Webb," who simply "blew" the Tylenol investigation thanks to "bureaucratic blundering incompetence."   McGarr had already listened to Dan Webb reiterate Lewis's biography: the violence toward his parents, the mental hospital commitment, the Raymond West murder charge, the Kansas City fraud schemes for which he was convicted in May of 1983 and sentenced to ten years, the fugitive flight, the extortion conviction, the breadboard schematic, the grandiose and quick-to-explode temperament, the innumerable aliases and deceptions.   Years later, some still show skepticism towards Lewis as the killer:   Superintendent Brzeczek It wasn't James Lewis. James Lewis was an asshole, an opportunist. He tried to extort some money from Johnson & Johnson, and he went to jail. He was in the joint a long time. When someone is in the penitentiary, you can go and talk to him, with or without his lawyer present. In all those years, all the work on James Lewis to put it together: nothing.   Attorney General Fahner Do I think James Lewis was involved? I did, and I do. And the head of the FBI office here at the time—I can't speak for him, but I think he felt as I did. But we could never put him in the city, in the places, at the right time.   August Locallo Lieutenant with the Chicago Police Department I was the top man in violent crimes. [Lewis] had lived in Chicago, and that's why they zeroed in on my unit. He was in custody in New York, and I was assigned to go to New York to interview him. Basically, the FBI had him in custody, and by the time we got to New York, he had his attorney and he wouldn't talk to us. That was a futile effort. He's a con man. Strictly a con man. And he'll do anything to get to his goal. I really believed he might have killed somebody, but they couldn't put anything on him.   Interesting to say the least. Why would this guy straight up insert himself in the crime for no reason? Did he really think an extortion letter would work?   Interesting either way!   There were a  couple more suspects besides Lewis.   Roger Arnold:   Roger Arnold was a 48-year-old dock worker. He was overheard saying some “suspicious things” about the Tylenol murders in a bar. While the police were questioning him, they found several connections. He worked at a jewel warehouse with Mary Reiner's father, Adam Janus bought his Tylenol from a Jewel convenience store, Mary Reiner bought her bottle from a store that is right across from the psychiatric ward where Arnold's wife was.   The officers found “How-to” crime books in Arnold's home and there was evidence of “chemistry” as well. The evidence of “chemistry” included beakers and other equipment, along with a bag of powder that turned out to be potassium carbonate.   Arnold refused to take a polygraph and there was never enough evidence to prosecute him.   Arnold went on to have a nervous breakdown from the attention in the media. He blamed everything on a bar owner, Marty Sinclair. In 1983, during the summer, Arnold shot and killed a man named John Stanisha, he thought Stanisha was Sinclair. Roger Arnold received a 30-year sentence for second-degree murder but only served 15 years of it. He died in June of 2008.   Laurie Dann:   Not much evidence to tie her to the murders but an interesting case with this one.   Laurie Dann  shot and killed one boy, Nick Corwin, and wounded two girls and three boys in a Winnetka, Illinois elementary school. She then took a family hostage and shot another man, non-fatally, before killing herself.   Dann was born in Chicago and grew up in Glencoe, a north suburb of Chicago.   She met and married Russell Dann, an executive in an insurance broker firm in September 1982, but the marriage quickly soured as Russell's family noted signs of obsessive-compulsive disorder and strange behavior[2] including leaving trash around the house.[3] She saw a psychiatrist for a short period, who identified her childhood and upbringing as a cause of her problems.[3]   Laurie and Russell Dann separated in October 1985.[2] The divorce negotiations were acrimonious, with Laurie claiming that Russell was abusive. In the following months, the police were called to investigate various incidents, including several harassing phone calls made to Russell and his family.[3] In April 1986, Laurie Dann accused Russell of breaking into and vandalizing her parents' house, where she was then living. Shortly after, she purchased a Smith & Wesson Model 19 .357 Magnum, telling the salesman that she needed it for self-defense. The police were concerned about her gun ownership and unsuccessfully tried to persuade Dann and her family that she should give up the gun.[2]   In August 1986, she contacted her ex-boyfriend, who was by then a resident at a hospital, and claimed to have had his child. When he refused to believe her, Dann called the hospital where he worked and claimed he had raped her in the emergency room.[3][5]   In September 1986, Russell Dann reported he had been stabbed in his sleep with an icepick. He accused Laurie of the crime, although he had not actually seen his attacker. The police decided not to press charges against Laurie based on a medical report which suggested that the injury might have been self-inflicted, as well as Russell's abrasive attitude towards the police and his failed polygraph test.[2][3] Russell and his family continued to receive harassing hang-up phone calls, and Laurie was arrested for calls made to Russell's sister. The charges were dropped due to lack of evidence.[3]   Just before their divorce was finalized in April 1987, Laurie accused Russell of raping her. There were no physical signs supporting Laurie's claim, although she passed two polygraph tests.[3] In May 1987, Laurie accused Russell of placing an incendiary device in her home.[2] No charges were filed against Russell for either alleged event. Laurie's parents believed her claims and supported and defended her throughout. By this time, Laurie Dann was being treated by another psychiatrist for obsessive-compulsive disorder and a "chemical imbalance"; the psychiatrist told police that he did not think Laurie was suicidal or homicidal.   In the summer of 1987, Dann sublet a university apartment in Evanston, Illinois. Once again, her strange behavior was noted, including riding up and down in elevators for hours, wearing rubber gloves to touch metal, and leaving meat to rot in sofa cushions. She took no classes at the university.   In the fall of 1987, Dann claimed she had received threatening letters from Russell and that he had sexually assaulted her in a parking lot, but the police did not believe her. A few weeks later, she purchased a .32-caliber Smith & Wesson Model 30-1 revolver.[2]   With her condition deteriorating, Dann and her family sought specialized help. In November 1987, she moved to Madison, Wisconsin, to live in a student residence while being observed by a psychiatrist who specialized in obsessive-compulsive disorder. She had already begun taking clomipramine, a drug for OCD, and her new psychiatrist increased the dosage, adding lithium carbonate to reduce her mood swings and initiating behavioral therapy to work on her phobias and ritualistic behaviors.[3] Despite the intervention, her strange behavior continued, including riding elevators for long periods, changing television channels repetitively, and an obsession with "good" and "bad" numbers. There were also concerns about whether she was bulimic.   Dann purchased a .22-caliber Beretta 21A Bobcat at the end of December 1987. In March 1988, she stopped attending her appointments with the psychiatrist and behavior therapist.[3] At about the same time, she began to make preparations for the attacks. She stole books from the library on poisons, and she diluted arsenic and other chemicals from a lab. She also shoplifted clothes and wigs to disguise herself and was arrested for theft on one occasion. Both her psychiatrist and her father tried to persuade her to enter the hospital as an inpatient, but she refused.[3]   Dann continued to make numerous hang-up phone calls to her former in-laws and babysitting clients. Eventually, the calls escalated to death threats. An ex-boyfriend and his wife also received dozens of threatening calls. In May 1988, a letter, later confirmed to have been sent by Laurie Dann, was sent to the hospital administration where her ex-boyfriend then worked, again accusing him of sexual assault. Since the phone calls were across state lines, the FBI became involved, and a federal indictment against Dann was prepared. However, the ex-boyfriend, fearful of publicity,[2] and concerned about Dann getting bail and then attempting to fulfill her threats against him, decided to wait until other charges were filed in Illinois.[3][5][6] In May 1988, a janitor found her lying in the fetal position inside a garbage bag in a trash room. This precipitated a search of her room and her departure back to Glencoe.   During the days before May 20, 1988, Laurie Dann prepared rice cereal snacks and juice boxes poisoned with the diluted arsenic she had stolen in Madison. She mailed them to a former acquaintance, ex-babysitting clients, her psychiatrist, Russell Dann, and others. In the early morning of May 20, she personally delivered snacks and juice "samples" to acquaintances, and families for whom she had babysat, some of whom had not seen her for years.[2][3] Other snacks were delivered to Alpha Tau Omega, Psi Upsilon, and Kappa Sigma fraternity houses and Leverone Hall at Northwestern University in Evanston.[2][3] Notes were attached to some of the deliveries.[7][8][9] The drinks were often leaking and the squares unpleasant-tasting, so few were actually consumed. In addition, the arsenic was highly diluted so nobody became seriously ill.[2]   At about 9:00 a.m. on the 20th, Dann arrived at the home of the Rushe family, former babysitting clients in Winnetka, Illinois, to pick up their two youngest children. The family had just told Dann they were moving away.[3] Instead of taking the children on the promised outing, she took them to Ravinia Elementary School in Highland Park, Illinois, where she erroneously believed that both of her former sister-in-law's two sons were enrolled (in fact, one of Dann's intended targets was not even a student at the school). She left the two children in the car while she entered the school and tried to detonate a fire bomb in one of the school's hallways. After Dann's departure, the small fire she set was subsequently discovered by students, and quickly extinguished by a teacher. She drove to a local daycare attended by her ex-sister-in-law's daughter and tried to enter the building with a plastic can of gasoline, but was stopped by staff.   Next Dann drove the children back to their home and offered them some arsenic-poisoned milk, but the boys spat it out because it tasted strange to them. Once at their home, she lured them downstairs and used gasoline to set fire to the house, trapping their mother and the two children in the basement (they managed to escape).[2][3][10] She drove three and a half blocks to the Hubbard Woods Elementary School with three handguns in her possession. She wandered into a second grade classroom for a short while, then left. Finding a boy in the corridor, Dann pushed him into the boys' washroom and shot him with a .22 semi-automatic Beretta pistol. Her Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum revolver jammed when she tried to fire it at two other boys, and she threw it into the trash along with the spare ammunition. The boys ran out of the washroom and raised the alarm.[2] Dann then reentered the second grade classroom where students were working in groups on a bicycle safety test. She ordered all the children into the corner of the room. The teacher refused and attempted to disarm Dann, managing to unload the Beretta in the struggle. Dann drew a .32 Smith & Wesson from the waistband of her shorts and aimed it at several groups of the students. She shot five children, killing eight-year-old Nick Corwin and wounding two girls and two boys before fleeing in her car.[3]   Dann was prevented from leaving the area by car because the roads were closed for a funeral cortege. She decided to drive her car backwards down the nearby street, but the road dead-ended into a private drive. Abandoning her car, she removed her bloodstained shorts and tied a blue garbage bag around her waist. With her two remaining guns she made her way through the woods and came upon the house of the Andrew family. Dann entered the house and met a mother and her twenty-year-old son, who were in the kitchen. She claimed she was raped and had shot the rapist in the struggle.[3][11] The Andrews were sympathetic[11] and tried to convince her that she need not fear the police because she had acted in self-defense. Mrs. Andrew gave Dann a pair of her daughter's pants to wear. While she was putting them on, Philip Andrew was able to pick up and pocket the Beretta. He suggested that she call her family. Dann agreed and called her mother, telling her she had done something terrible and that the police were involved. Philip took the phone and explained Dann's story about the rape and shooting, suggesting that Mrs. Wasserman come to get Dann; Mrs. Wasserman said she could not come because she did not have a car.   Mr. Andrew arrived home, and they continued to argue with Dann, insisting she give up the second gun. Dann called her mother again and this time Mr. Andrew spoke with Mrs. Wasserman, asking her to persuade Dann to give up the gun. While Dann spoke with her mother, Mrs. Andrew left the house and alerted the police. Mr. Andrew told Dann that he would not remain in the house if she did not put down the gun, and also left the house. Dann ordered Philip to stay. Just before noon, seeing the police advancing on the house she shot Philip in the chest, but he managed to escape out the back door before collapsing and being rescued by the police and ambulance personnel.   With the house surrounded, Dann went upstairs to a bedroom. The Wassermans and Russell Dann were brought to the house. At about 7:00 p.m., an assault team entered the house while Mr. Wasserman attempted to get Dann's attention with a bullhorn. The police found her body in the bedroom; she had shot herself in the mouth.   Soooooo yea…there's that…she did try and poison people and she was definitely crazy…   So there's pretty much everything known in this case .. Which is to say… Not a ton. It's an interesting case that remains open to this day. And while it seems Lewis is a strong suspect as they kept after him  as late as 2012…still no one has been charged.   The aftermath literally changed the way medication is sold.    McNeil Consumer Products, a subsidiary of the health care giant, Johnson & Johnson, manufactured Tylenol. To its credit, the company took an active role with the media in issuing mass warning communications and immediately called for a massive recall of the more than 31 million bottles of Tylenol in circulation. Tainted capsules were discovered in early October in a few other grocery stores and drug stores in the Chicago area, but, fortunately, they had not yet been sold or consumed. McNeill and Johnson & Johnson offered replacement capsules to those who turned in pills already purchased and a reward for anyone with information leading to the apprehension of the individual or people involved in these random murders.   The case continued to be confusing to the police, the drug maker and the public at large. For example, Johnson & Johnson quickly established that the cyanide lacing occurred after cases of Tylenol left the factory. Someone, police hypothesized, must have taken bottles off the shelves of local grocers and drug stores inJohnson & Johnson developed new product protection methods and ironclad pledges to do better in protecting their consumers in the future. Working with FDA officials, they introduced a new tamper-proof packaging, which included foil seals and other features that made it obvious to a consumer if foul play had transpired. These packaging protections soon became the industry standard for all over-the-counter medications. The company also introduced price reductions and a new version of their pills — called the “caplet” — a tablet coated with slick, easy-to-swallow gelatin but far harder to tamper with than the older capsules which could be easily opened, laced with a contaminant, and then placed back in the older non-tamper-proof bottle.   Within a year, and after an investment of more than $100 million, Tylenol's sales rebounded to its healthy past and it became, once again, the nation's favorite over-the-counter pain reliever. Critics who had prematurely announced the death of the brand Tylenol were now praising the company's handling of the matter. Indeed, the Johnson & Johnson recall became a classic case study in business schools across the nation. the Chicago area, laced the capsules with poison, and then returned the restored packages to the shelves to be purchased by the unknowing victims.   In 1983, the U.S. Congress passed what was called “the Tylenol bill,” making it a federal offense to tamper with consumer products. In 1989, the FDA established federal guidelines for manufacturers to make all such products tamper-proof.   Copycats:   Hundreds of copycat attacks involving Tylenol, other over-the-counter medications, and other products also took place around the United States immediately following the Chicago deaths.[1][25]   Three more deaths occurred in 1986 from tampered gelatin capsules.[26] A woman died in Yonkers, New York, after ingesting "Extra-Strength Tylenol" capsules laced with cyanide.[27] Excedrin capsules in Washington state were tampered with, resulting in the deaths of Susan Snow and Bruce Nickell from cyanide poisoning and the eventual arrest and conviction of Bruce Nickell's wife, Stella Nickell, for her intentional actions in the crimes connected to both murders.[28] That same year, Procter & Gamble's Encaprin was recalled after a spiking hoax in Chicago and Detroit that resulted in a precipitous sales drop and a withdrawal of the pain reliever from the market.[29] In 1991 in Washington state, Kathleen Daneker and Stanley McWhorter were killed from two cyanide-tainted boxes of Sudafed, and Jennifer Meling went into a coma from a similar poisoning but recovered shortly thereafter. Jennifer's husband, Joseph Meling, was convicted on numerous charges in a federal Seattle court regarding the deaths of Daneker and McWhorter and the attempted murder of his wife, who was abused during the Melings' marriage. Meling was sentenced to life imprisonment and lost an appeal for a retrial.[30][31]   In 1986 a University of Texas student, Kenneth Faries, was found dead in his apartment after succumbing to cyanide poisoning.[32] Tampered Anacin capsules were determined to be the source of the cyanide found in his body. His death was ruled as a homicide on May 30, 1986.[33] On June 19, 1986 the AP reported that the Travis County Medical Examiner ruled his death a likely suicide. The FDA determined he obtained the poison from a lab in which he worked.   There you have it…the Tylenol murders!
