Rozerem  (ramelteon 8-mg tablets)                                          01/07                              

From: Takeda Pharmaceuticals to RxLink Pharmacy

What can you tell your Rozerem customers to expect?

Dear RxLink Pharmacist: 

The perception patients have of how a sleep medicine works may not be the reality with Rozerem. For example, patients may think that because the don't feel sedated, Rozerem isn't working. But because Rozerem targets the nromal sleep-wake cycle to initate sleep, this isn't the case. So, it may be important for patients to know what to expect from Rozerem.

Enclosed is a brochure that can help guide you in educating your customers about Rozerem. It explains what you can tell them to expect from Rozerem.

In addition, the brochure lists many key features of Rozerem. To learn more about Rozerem, go to www.rozerem.com. Please see important safty information on the back of this letter. If you have additional questions concerning Rozerem, please contact your Tekeda Sales Represenitive or call 1-877-TAKEDA-7

06/12/07 - Just wondering... Hello! I'm looking to enter a pharmacy school next fall where I will be able to work towards PharmD. Yet, I don't have the greatest grades. My cumulative GPA is 2.7 and the prerequisites are around 3.0. However, I do have a bachelors degree in Biology and have a minored in Chemistry. My question is that, do you know any schools that might be easier to get into with this GPA? Plus, I'm also looking for financial aids. Do most pharmacy schools offer these financial aids? Are their any schools that look more at experiences than grades, since I have various experiences in pharmacy settings and have volunteered as well. Please respond and let me know. Thank you for your time. From: a.ordana. Reply
