FM engineers have changed my profile to assign a score of 2 instead of 5 for the VADESPAM hit, using a tag ME_VADESPAM_LOW. For me, this is sufficient; had the score been 2 from the start, I'd have...

Two more, sent Jan 24, only a day after Yassar told me it's fixed. Both emails were from AffordableRxMeds.com, a reputable Canadian dealer.
