Avandia monofilament

This is a drug rep toy that not only useful, but its use pertains to the drug. Avandia is useful in some diabetes patients, and one of the most important things to check in them is their sense of fine touch. A standardized monofilament is best, and this one has its own case, into which it retracts. I like this toy a lot.

Levitra Reflex Hammer

Not the greatest reflex hammer out there, for sure. Far too lightweight, in fact you might get better results with some of the pens I've reviewed here. The only good thing about it is the microfilament for light tough testing that can be extruded from the handle. But I'm sticking with the one I picked up at the med supply store.

Benicar Post-it notes

Just basic post-it notes, tough to go wrong here.

Namenda hand sanitizer

I don't know what it is with drug reps and hand sanitizer, but all of them are taking bad advice in the fragrance department. Whoever picked this one needs to be told that "nail polish remover" is not a winning odor. Thumbs down, way down, on this toy.

Aggrenox pen

This is an excellent pen. Heavy, wide bodied, with ink that doesn't skip. I'm currently using it as my primary pen.

Cardene Flash Drive

This is a neat little flash drive. When plugged into a computer, that little gray oval near the keychain loop lights up red. Very distinctive. The gift of this number capped perhaps the oddest interaction I've yet had with a drug rep. She seemed genuinely surprised that I had heard of this drug, which has been available for over a decade. Perhaps she was trying to pull off flattery, but she came across as clueless or condescending, I couldn't decide which.
