Thread: This is my new Company....

  1. #1

    This is my new Company....

    It's called OSMOTICA PHARMACEUTICALS...and guess what! They are coming out with a new drug called R-Baclofen.

    I mean how frickin amazing is that; I get a job or a company that makes baclofen, oxybutlyn, and some other fun stuff too....?!

    Being an accountant I could have gotten a job for a company that makes dog-poop-scoops, or anything.....but here I am surrounded by people in white coats who are coming up with new stuff. And usually people in white coats do unspeakable things to me....so this is a nice change.

    Anyway, R-Baclofen reportedly does what normal baclofen does, but without any of the side-effects, most notably it does not make you sleepy. Which is great. They are getting their first clinical batch out on Jan 15th for humans.....and me

    Anyway here are some fun pics of my first days.....





    See the office with the light on, that's mine.....the Plant Manager is in the corner next to me. Super nice facilities.








    I want them to make it look like I am pulling a wheelie....




    Does this sweater-vest make me look more disabled???


    On a serious note, its nice to have a job again....being unemployed was a bit scary for a while there. All those who are unemployed have my sincere sympathies, especially those in a chair. I need to try not to lose this one (by wasting time posting on CCC??!!).....

    Hey Mark, good to hear from you and that things are going well with the new company.
    Did you get your very own brand new custom made HC spot? Those pictures are great.
    Try to find a teeny bit of time to post......

    Congrats on New Job

    Hi Mark,
    Congratulations on your new job. Sounds like a great opportunity. Keep us posted on any new drugs in the pipeline. Just don't let them use you as an experimental test subject.

    Will you continue your efforts on the Power Pod?

    My best....

    MarkB701: I had the same thought as SCIfor55yrs - you started your own company. Anyway, congratulations! looks like a nice company to work for.

    yes, sorry for the misunderstanding...

    definitely a very cool and progressive company. I am really excited about the R-Baclofen. They really seem to have a handle on this.

    Did you know that after testing on animals (rats) they test new drugs on people in developing countries (India, Romania etc)? I was a little shocked. The reason is that they are simply looking for a class of people who have not already been treated for their illness. Over here you would have to weane all the old people off their demensia drugs and then start them on the test drug.......

    Anyway, I am going to try to sneak some of the Baclofen myself.....I mean, whats the worst that could happen....
