My battle with Kaiser Healthcare ....and what to be ready for at Adcom.

I've been talking to other MD's re a new prescription for Vascepa ...so far its more complicated then I expected .
This post is not about that .

This post is a request for help in responding to the following from my Kaiser Cardiologist .....after I had sent him the NLA statement

His response
------------------------------------
"The trial has problems, there was an increase of atrial fibrillation in the treatment group, and in the control group mineral oil was used which could have had an adverse effect.
I can't recommend this medication at this time.
The FDA currently recommends it only for patients for severe hypertriglyceridemia, triglycerides of 500 mg/dl, typically they make recommendations,on more than one trial. "

-----------------------------

Can anyone link specific responses to his concerns
1) Increase in A Fib ...from what I remember there was no increase in strokes
2) Mineral oil ....does anyone remember the specific Dr Bhatt or AMRN response to that .
3) FDA wanting more than 1 trial

I know the easiest thing to do is probably dump Kaiser and try and sign up with UCSF ...but there are problems with that since my Medicare is apparently tied to Kaiser until the Nov " open enrollment " period ...my brief understanding .
Switching is probably the easiest ....but I'm inclined to want to fight Kaiser .....mount a "patient advocate "campaign...so any suggestions on how I might do that would be welcome .
thx
Kiwi
