Crystal emailed us with her response from Merck (see Crystal’s Letter To Merck). It is pasted below.
I received a response from Merck stating that they appreciate my concern and understand my reason for contacting them. They have forwarded my letter to their Worldwide Product Safety Department for review, and said that they would contact me to ask permission to speak with my daughter’s physician. Then, the letter says that Merck encourages me to direct any and all questions regarding Gardasil to my daughter’s healthcare provider, that only the personal physician can respond to these questions. Merck is not in a position to intervene between the patient and their physician.
My comment: Unfortunately, the doctors do not have any answers to the questions and do not know what to do about these reactions!
Maybe we should ALL write letters to Merck to try to get some attention from them!
