    Qnexa is now Qsymia. The first 14 names submitted to the FDA were rejected. Vivus has manufacturing issues. No supply and faulty process will only get product out for the first two months. On top of that a challenging REMS. It's too bad. Good people, bad decision.

    This position was brought to my attention by a friend. I'm currently in pharma, but looking to transition out over the next year or two. The base salary for this job is actually less than what I make. Seems like more of a risk than anything. And as anyone knows that has a clue....this gig is only as good as your manager and your drugs managed care position. Managed care will dictate what happens with this drug. The position pays 70,000 to the best of my knowledge. Bonus will be a crap shoot if you ask me. I guess if you have nothing to begin with...then this is a no brainer. Any thoughts from others in the same situation?

    I'm out of work so I'd love to be able to just go back to work.
    I would take the job.
    However, I didn't know about this drug or if they even had a sales team until recently.

    I heard PDI is hiring the sales force but I guess i'm a lot too late to apply.
    I went onto their website and applied for what was available.

    I'm very frustrated in not being able to work. However, I do think
    there is a lot of potential with this drug and obesity market.

    I wish I had a contact to get in.

    I do think the drug will be approved on July 17th do you think so?

    It will be approved. But supply is very limited. Not the way to LAUNCH.

    thank you very much.

    One last question or opinion.
    I have been out of work for quit some time "meaning in the pharma world"
    like a couple of years. Only because i can not land a job.

    I've tried with everyone "meaning companies, networking" etc..
    But it seems like the industry is changing. I'm competing against other
    unemployed, downsizing, etc..

    A part of me just feels like giving up on looking within the industry but
    then I do get excited about some great drugs that are out or coming out to sell.

    What do you think? Find another industry or just keep looking.

    I wish I had a way in for this drug

    Thank you for your time.
    I'm just so frustrated

    I would look elsewhere outside of pharma. Especially if you have been in this business for over 15 years. They don't want our type anymore. they want young, dumb, impressionable, mold-able, dopes that will march exactly the way that they want them to march. Get out of the business and do something that you actually feel good about. this business has been good to me, but it's time to go and do something full filling. In the end, the shareholders don't care about you. We are reusable trash. best of luck and follow your heart.

    I so hope you are telling the truth.

    I just called my stock broker and had him sell
    my stock first thing in the morning based upon
    your thread message.

    I'm tempted to invest in arena pharmaceuticals at this point as their stock may soar
    due to vivus not getting approved per your thread.

    You know you either saved me or sunked me..

    Evidently,

    There was a report in the USA Today that reported the drug as approved but was then removed.

    The story was removed from USA Today's website about an hour later and replaced by a statement that the story had been prepared "in anticipation of FDA approval, but at this hour that approval is still pending."

    Being that it is at the end of the day and no word makes me Leary that the drug may not be approved..

    This is so nerve wracking
