Furosemide 40mg – A Close Look at the Generic Version of Lasix

Sam Solomon, the founding editor, leaves Canadian Medicine News after four years. He will be missed. Postings will continue under David Elkins and other medical and health policy writers.

It's been a pleasure for me to write and interact with our readers. I am leaving to study law, beginning this fall. In the meantime, I will be taking some time off to pursue some personal projects.

Thanks for reading.

All the best, Sam, with your studies.

Interesting there is no explanation why you won't be replaced, and the blog will continue. Have the publishers deemed traffic to be too low here to maintain this blog? I hope not. The PE site is so dingy looking, and difficult to navigate (I usually don't bother).
