I am finishing Psychiatry school in one year.

My idea is for a foundation to support people of modest means to receive non-generic forms of medications such as Zyprexa Zydis and Cylantra that I personally use that maintains my life and would have prevented some of the health problems that I have experienced as of late.

I find that generic forms of pills have adverse side effects and have shortened my life.

The government of Ontario anyway had stopped covering this medication that I need for various ailments in around March 2010.

There have been numerous articles about the problems with generic pills and pill shortages in Ontario of pills. 

Maybe one day there could be a foundation to get people the real drugs they need as there are new drugs with Eli Lilly that would be very beneficial to cancer patients but due to the adverse costs to adequate treatments people are not prescribed these drugs.

Yours sincerely,

M Davis MD.
