Cost-effective?

Following on from a recent post about some of the ‘old’ DMD’s being withdrawn.

Is this because they aren’t working or because they have been superceded by other more efficient ones?

Does anyone actually collate information on these Drugs - how many people are on each one and how are these people faring?

And what does ‘cost-effective’ actually mean?

A drug is effective or it ain’t - it’s efficacy isn’t determined by it’s cost.

(Whether or not a drug is too expensive to prescribe is another issue.)
