One of the best anti-arrhythmia drugs on the market, Plomox is priced accordingly – that is, ludicrously high – by its manufacturer, with a markup in the region of 600%.
For that reason, and because it can have deleterious side effects, such as nausea, impotence, anal leakage, and causing hypertension when administered to diabetics, most doctors have a love-hate relationship with the drug. They love how effective it is, but they hate that its prohibitively high cost places it out of reach for many patients who might otherwise benefit from it. The company that created Plomox is facing a lawsuit over the drug, but few details of the case’s specifics are known.
