Not Impressed With UCLA Clinical Trials

I don’t know if anyone is keeping up with me, but on a somewhat recent post, I talked about entering into a clinical trial from UCLA to try out a turmeric supplement.  The pill, which may have been placebo ended up making me very ill and cost me one week’s worth of work.  Now that I have had plenty of time to recover, I feel great again.  Needless to say, today I received a bill from UCLA for blood work.  I’m shocked, to say the least.  Now I have to try and figure out why this would be and deal with the stress of making sure I don’t have to pay.  Since the clinical trial was unpaid from the start, and cost me money in gas, time, and the addition of the pill making me very sick, this is just the icing on the cake.  I hate to complain, but wanted anyone out there who was considering a clinical trial at UCLA, to think twice!  I had been considering doing a yoga study for UCLA on RA but at this point, never mind.  This clinical trial was suppose to keep my anonymity, so it’s terribly shocking, really it is, that the billing department would even receive my information!  Thanks so much to everyone for your support!  ((HUGS))!-Sarah
