Stop Glaxo Now: Consumers Strike Back

Note: The following was received from an organization called Stop Glaxo Now.

What you can do

Take These Steps:

1. Call Glaxo’s toll-free consumer line at 1-800-825-5249, to tell them the company is hurting seniors and to lift the ban against Canadian drugs. You will need to follow a few quick automatic prompts before speaking with a live operator.

2. Write to Glaxo’s U.S. President to share your feelings:

Mr. Christopher Viehbacher, President, GlaxoSmithKline US Pharmaceuticals, Five Moore Drive, PO Box 13398, Research Triangle Park, NC, 27709

3. E-mail your U.S. Senator, the President or other legislators using the direct, free links found at website, or call the U.S. Senate switchboard at 202-224-3121, and they can connect you with your U.S. Senators.

4. Urge your friends and relatives to switch from GlaxoSmithKline drugs to comparable products made by other leading drugmakers. The drugs marketed by Glaxo in the U.S. include: Advair, Agenerase, Augmentin, Avandia, Bactroban, Combivir, Coreg, Epivir-HBV, Flonase, Flovent, Hycamtin, Imitrex, Malarone, Paxil, Requip, Serevent, Timentin, Valtrez, Ventolin, Wellbutrin SR, Ziagen, Zofran, Zyban.

5. Sell GlaxoSmithKline stock. If you, your friends or relatives own shares of GlaxoSmithKline, get rid of it. Why would you want to support such a company that is hurting needy seniors in this way?

6. Tell your friends, relatives about this situation and encourage them to take these actions and/or spread the word.
