captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." it is nighttime in sydney, australia, where the city's center is shut down by hostage drama inside a coffee shop. it's been going on for five hours. at least five hostages managed to escape but the gunman is holding an unknown number of people inside. >> they don't know the reason but the gunman mentioned isis in his lastetest demand. clarissa ward is monitoring the situation in london. good morning. >> good morning. it's near the city's financial district in the heart of sydney, and here you're looking at the current scene at this time of year the cafes are packed with holiday shoppers and morning commuters, some who have now
7:04 am
been held hostage for well over 12 hours. at around 9:45 in the morning a hostage crisis began unfolding at the lindt chocolate cafe. >> there was one guy walking around with a hat and a beard and then that's when the police showed up. >> these images show people with their arms raised pressed against the large windows. a black flag was unraveled around held up against the glass by the people inside. as police surrounded the area the gunman was seen pacing in the middle of the cafe. he had a bandana. six hours into the ordeal several hostages finally emerged running from a back exit. you can only imagine how terrified they are. an hour later, two more made a frantic escape. >> it is profoundly shocking that innocent people should be held hostage by an armed person
7:05 am
claiming political motivation. >> it brought the largest city to a standstill. thousands of officer workers spilled onto city streets and parks as buildings near the cafe including u.s. consulate and the sydney opera house were evacuated. as negotiators work into the night, authorities say the safety of the hostages remain of paramount concern. >> for those who have loved ones that may be caught up in this, for those that may be in that particular building, rest assured, we're doing all we can to set you free. >> cbs news has learned that suspect is known to officials and he has been arrested for extremist activity. at this time the gunman is said to be demanding two things, that an isis flag be brought to the cafe and he be put in contact with australia prime minister tony abbott.
7:06 am
charlie? >> thank you. michael morell is a former cia deputy director. he joins us from washington. good morning. >> good morning. >> what do they say? >> we don't know what is motivating this person but it does appear he is in some way motivated by isis. if that's the case, this is not surprising to me. isis has had a focus on australia for some time. somt 300 australians have gone to the middle east to fight in that war. 70 or so are fighting for isis. just a couple of months ago the australians did a countrywide raid arresting a number of people after a senior isis leader called for individuals in australia to behead australians in public for isis. so there is this focus on australia. >> but it also is an example of the long reach or long ten
7:07 am
tackles of isis, is it not, which gets more publicity for them around the world. >> absolutely. absolutely, charlie. >> australia recently raised it as high. can you describe why they're a partner? >> they were a coalition in the war on iraq, on the war in afghanistan and is now a coalition partner in the fight against isis so isis seems them as an enemy. >> when other countries look at this perhaps as isis succeeding with lone wolves carrying out this attack, what concerns you the most? >> what concerns me the most is we're going see this kind of terrorism around the world and we're going to see it here, norah. we're going to see this kind of attack here. and we need to be prepared for
7:08 am
that. you know, it shouldn't surprise people when this happens here sometime over the next year or so, guaranteed. >> how do we prepare for it? >> it's very difficult to stop something like this. you know, one way this happens is if isis leadership directs it, and intelligence agencies can often see that and prevent it. if people are vocal about what they're going to do on social media, you can often prevent it. but if they're quiet -- if they're quiet about it, it's very easy to carry something out like this, very difficult to prevent it. >> are you convinced, michael, that this is a lone wolf incident? >> we don't know. there's a couple of possibilities. one is that this person has been directed by isis to do this. that would be kind of the worst case. the second is that this person went to fight in syria and has now come back. the third possibility is that this person has just been
7:09 am
self-radicalized by the isis message. i think the fourth possibility is that he's mentally ill, right? so it's one of those four and it goes from worst case to kind of like less worst case. >> all of the scenarios very chilling. thank you, michael morell, for joining us this morning. >> you're welcome. a new cbs poll out shows americans are divided. the poll shows 49% of americans feel aggressive terroristist techniques like waterboarding are sometimes justified. 36% say they're never justified. >> meanwhile 52% believe the release of that senate report could pose a threat to u.s. security. on sunday former vice president dick cheney says he regrets nothing the cia did after 9/11. bill plante is at the white house with cheney's criticism of the latest report. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the vice president has been the most ardent defender of the tactics used by the cia to
7:10 am
interrogate suspected terrorists and in a combative interview sunday cheney dismissed the claims that what the cia did was tanlt mount to torture. >> tore tour is what they did to 3,000 americans on 9/11. >> reporter: the former vice president offered a passionate defense and results and said the agents should be praised. >> we did capture bin laden, we did capture a lot of the senior guys of al qaeda who were responsible for the attack on 9/11. i'd do it again in a minute. >> and he rejected aed not only the conclusions drawn in the report but also committee chairman dianne feinstein's characteristic of it. >> it's a crock. it's not true. we were very careful to stop torture. the senate was committed to say it was torture but we remain short of it. >> reporter: he offered no apology that 25% of the pritz
7:11 am
nevers subjected to harsh interrogation tactics were wrongly detained. >> i'm more concerned with bad guys who got out and got released than the few who were innocent. >> reporter: republican john mccain who was capture and tortured during the vietnam war supported the report's release. >> that's what america is all about. we do wrong, make mistakes, review those, and vow never to do them again. >> reporter: and mccain pushed back. >> there were violations so that geneva's conventions treatment of prisoners. there were violations against torture. you can't claim that tying someone to the floor and having them freeze to death is not torture. >> reporter: cheney also took issue with the report's claim that president bush wasn't fully briefed on interrogation tactics until 2006. he called that a lie. he said that bush was fully supportive of everything the cia

7:13 am
money in the bank. >> reporter: the nationwide average for a gallon of gas has dropped nearly a dollar in the last three months to $2.53 per gallon. >> a lower oil price is like a gigantic tax cut. that's going to put several hundred dollars per year in the pockets of u.s. households. >> reporter: the last time prices were this low was in may of 2009 when the nation was still reeling from the global financial crisis. now the bad news. the u.s. has become d biggest oil produce never the world because of the shale oil boom. that's helped lead to a global oil glut and spiraling prices. >> we now have a lot of kpeps and folks working in the shaletry. we're not going to be working with wells as much because the price has dropped. >> reporter: demand for oil in europe and asia remains flat
7:14 am
suggesting the world economy is weakening. all of these factors contributed to the dow jones industrial average tumbling nearly 700 points last week, its worst drop in more than three years. >> one of the reasons we've seen prices decline sharply is because there are these unpredictable consequences when you see big convulsive move. >> reporter: prices aside, this is a nice early christmas gift for the average american driver. consider this. they could save as much as $500 on gas this year and that has the potential to boost u.s. household spending power by about $70 billion. norah? >> that's a lot. thank you. president obama plans to sign a bill this week keeping the government running through the fall. the bill passed 56-20.

8:00 am
it is monday, december 15th, 2014. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead, including the hostage crisis in australia's largest city. a gunman who seized a cafe wants to fly the isis flag. but first here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. the suspect is known to officials, and he has been previously arrested for extremist activity. >> what concerns me the most is that we're going to see this kind of attack here sometime over the next year or so guaranteed. >> once again dismissed claims by the senate democrat that what the agency did was tantamount tore torture. >> according to sony pictures,
8:01 am
the hackers sent out an information. >> the storms produce add tornado in kansas city. >> sidney crosby, one of the league's first players to catch the disease. >> this is really a battle between the old and the news. the marijuana producers are the upstarts except they're bringing in a lot of new business. >> there's reefer madness alive and well. >> prices are lower at this pump. normally that would be good news for the economy. not necessary will i this time. >> the price of oil has dropped to $60 a bail, which is so low it's a pretty good deal on barrels. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. downtown sydney, australia, is sealed off this morning. a lone gunman is holding hostages in a cafe. here's a look at the scene. this has been going on for
8:02 am
hours. then just moments ago videos apparently from the hostages appeared online. they seem to be reading statements prepared by the gunman. >> hi, everyone. i'm one of the many hostages here at the cafe in mountain place. we have three specific requests and none of those have been met. one is to send an isil flag as soon as possible and one hostage will be released. this is an attack on australia by the islamic state and we need tony abbott to contact him on a live feed and five hostages will be released. most importantly there are three bombs plants around town. >> imagine the stress she's under. there's no sign of this drama ending. laura duncan is live at the skrine. >> the gunman holds a number of hostages. it's not clear how many are being held. there are reports it could be as
8:03 am
many as 30, but five have managed to escape. it all began at 5:30 local time here in sydney late into the evening now and the gunman has said to police he's planted four bombs in the area, two inside the cafe and two elsewhere in the business district. well, the hostages, some of them, managed to escape. they were seen fleeing from the fire escape. two women came out and three men earlier on. police say they have made contact with the gunman and they are still hoping for a peaceful resolution here, but late into the night, a huge police presence and very worrying for the people of sydney. with that, back to you, norah. >> lorna, thank you. bob orr is in washington. bob, good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> just how troubling is this, the demands made by this hostage taker? >> this is very serious obviously.
8:04 am
this is now a man apparently acting by himself, acting in the name of isis, listing demands and trying to make this into a bigger broader terrorist attack. this is the kind of thing the u.s. authorities and british authorities have been warning about for months. this is almost the prototypical type of attack that we believe lone wolves might be capable of. it's have interesting here to see how australian authorities are going to react. so far they have not produced the flag, they have not made contact with the prime minister and the hostage taker, and i think they're hoping time is on their side. this looks to be a gang of one, a man who's trying to act in a terrorist group and a man do w.h.o. does not have broad support. >> generally what do we know about australia's strategy for dealing with terrorists and hoss tackles? >> much like ours, charlie, this is a country under the gun in terms of islamic radicals because it's aligned with the united states and other
8:05 am
countries in a war against terror. it's place where a number of its citizens have gone to syria and iraq to fight, around 300 australians, we believe. they have the same kind of warnings we have, same tactics. they're very, very capable. but this is a situation where it was a threat it could not be foreseen. it's a solitaire man, we believe, and that is the most dangerous type of threat to try to prevent. >> bob, there's word this man has been arrested before for extremist activity. what do we know about him? ? hu's a known trouble maker in the area. but it also tells me he may not be aligned. he doesn't appear to be at least at this point of a larger sale or i think there would have been better intelligence leading up to this attack. that might be a positive. also one last thing. this is one person trying to control a number of hostages in a fixed location. that's a fair location for authorities not discounting the
8:06 am
possible bombs in the area, so they have time to wait and resolve this peacefully if they can. >> all right, bob. thank you. we will continue to monitor developments there. this morning some victims from the sandy hook elementary school are planning to sue the manufacturer of the gunman's assault rifle. in the past two years ten states actually decreased funding for mental health treatment. former congressman patrick kennedy is here. while in congress he wrote the mental health parody law that urges dream for mental illness be treated the same as physical illness. he's now the co-founder of one mind, an add voe ka i have group. last night scott pelley interviewed ashley and her mother. she fought the company. >> in 2012 ashley was in the hospital for the fourth time that year. they thought they had taken away everything that could hurt her,
8:07 am
but she smashed her cell phone and cut her wrists with the glass. >> what did that tell you in terms of the treatment that she needed? >> it told me that she needed long-term treatment to survive. >> reporter: macri rah says that anthem recommended treatment at timberline knolls, a residential facility. a doctor said ashley needed 90 days, but after sending her to illinois from california, anthem denied payment after six days saying that ashley could be safely treated without patient services. >> did the people at timberline knolls believe that? >> no, they absolutely didn't believe it. they gave us the option of paying $22,000 to complete the 30 days, and we -- there wasn't a chance that we could do that. >> now look at how ashley's care was denied. this log shows dr. tim jack, a psychiatrist working on become of anthem called ashley's doctor
8:08 am
three times in 32 minutes. one call was disconnected. he left two messages. dr. jack waited 22 minutes for a call back and then denied coverage. from the first call to denial, 54 minutes speaking to no one. patrick kennedy, welcome. >> thank you, charlie. >> what's your reaction to scott's piece? >> well, it's all too familiar a strategy that mental health is not treated like the rest of physical health. the notion was 90% to 100% rate where you would never expect that for cancer or vascular disease. when i wrote the law it was to treat the brain illness like the rest of physical health. it's not complicated. what is complicated getting to the details how medical utilization review, medical
8:09 am
assessments and determines are made. i vitamin the insurance companies to really come forward now that this new law is in place and outline how they will make these decisions because what's most frustrating is the lack of transparency in how they make these decisions. as you saw in your report, this doctor never saw ashley and was making a decision really on the fly. and, of course, was reimbursed basically to deny. so we need to clear this up. and i -- you know, there's still going to be medical management, but what we want to do is make sure there's no more adverse decisions against the mentally ill as there would be against cancer. that is the operative point. >> you say, congressman, that we have to see mental illness in a new way, that you have to see these people as morally flawed. what do you think it will take that people do not see them as morally flawed? if it didn't happen in newtown, which is one of the most graphic cases, what do we need to do? what will it take?
8:10 am
>> we need more representative but we night to apply what we already know. most people think you can treat mental illness but that's part of the stigma. we have new tools to treat the illnesses unlike ever before. we need to put those into practice and i think the attitudes will shift once they know that their loved ones actually can be successfully treated. >> let me read anthem insurance. it reads in part, throughout the care of these individuals our behavioral health profeshals provided the patients and families numerous care options that went beyond their covered benefits. what can you do? >> right now united health is now being sued for a similar set of circumstances. this has applied to many insurance companies across the field. what we need from the administration, the department of labor regulates these through
8:11 am
plans. they need to set forth some very strong compliance measures to get disclosure. disclosure is what's going to allow us to make these decision over the mentally ill wherewhere they wouldn't do so if it was cancer, cardiovascular disease, or diabetes. >> good to see you. thanking for your worm. >> i appreciate that, norah. thanks, gayle. >> thank you. >> ahead on "cbs this morning," oprah winfrey returns to the big screen. she's in studio 57 with david, the star in "selma" about martin

8:19 am
interest in teaming up with the 4-year-old. >> that first e-mail you got from j. crew, you thought what? >> i didn't think it was real. seriously to know the volume of e-mail coming in at the time it was incredibly overwhelming, but that particular e-mail definitely kind of stopped me in my tracks and i thought is this really real? >> j. crew flu the family to new york where sidney was treated like a rock star, and last week they made it official. fashion by mayhem would work with j. crew on a 2015 summer collection for kids. >> some people will look at the intricacies of the dresses that she has created and described and they'll say, did she really do that? what do you say to those people? >> i would say she did not come out of the womb with little scissors and packing tape and starting off and putting these things together on her own. there are definitely dresses

welcome back to "cbs this morning." coming up in this half hour, oprah. there's only one oprah winfrey here live and in color in studio 57. feeling under the weather but you look great along with actor david oyelowo. say it right. although people last night said we should call you davidoyelo-wow. >> i'll take that. >> they're bringing "selma" to the big screen. we'll talk about the movie that may resonate now more than ever. that's ahead. time to show you this morn's headlines from around the globe. the world of the year is culture.
8:31 am
that's according to merriam-webster. culture had a 15% increase in lookups on the dictionary website last year. awarding are up. they include nostalgia, insidious, and legacy. "the guardian" has posted new pictures of prince george. the duke and duchess have released three photos. his sweater vest has already sold out. "new york" magazine reports on a high school student who made $72 million trading stocks during his lunch break. 17-year-old started with pennies. today he's worth big figures. he bought a bmw but doesn't have a license. he links with his parents. >> i want to talk to him. march 1st marks the 50th
8:32 am
anniversary. i eventually led to lyndon johnson to sign the voting rights act. now the film "selma" recounts that march. oprah plays annie lee cooper who was repeatedly denied the right to vote and david oyelowo plays dr. martin luther king jr. >> those who go forward say no more, no more. that means protest, that means march, that means disturb the peace, that means jail, that means risk, and that is hard. we will not wait any longer. give us the vote. that's right. no more. we're not asking. we're demanding, give us the vote. >> on thursday "selma" earned four golden globe nominations. they include best dramatic
8:33 am
picture, best actor, oyelowo, best picture and best original song. oprah winfrey and david oyelowo join us at the table and we're pleased to have them. how did this show bring you together? >> "the butler" brought us together and mother and son. i showed my passion and oprah said i'll hello you do this. >> you said i want to do this and you're british. how in the world did you think you could play martin luther king jr. because this project was dead. >> trust me. i feel the same way as even, really, he's british? when i read this script i had a deep spiritual knowing i was going to do this with my life and it took seven years to get here, but i'm so proud and happy that we got it done. >> i was going say, two years
8:34 am
ago oprah said to me, watch david oyelowoyelowo. you have such a bond which is unusual because she doesn't get friends easily. she knows it's true. when he told me she invited him and his family to hawaii, i thought, oh, she likes him and his wife. but you predicted it two years ago. what did you see? >> i saw in david what i felt and saw in myself at this age. i mean i think he has a calling and he obviously is a brilliant actor, but he is one of those people who also wants to honor that calling in a bigger way. so his choices for the kind of work that he does. look at you, baby. his choices are really reflective of who he is as a human being. so i saw that thing. there's a hummelsness and a drive and a passion for life that i felt in myself. >> describe that moment and that thought process when david said i've been trying to get this movie made, it's so important,
8:35 am
and you said, we've got to to do this. >> well, actually he showed me a tape of himself, remember? he showed me a tape of himself and he said, i want you to know, what do you think of this. >> oh, gosh. with the oliver twist voice again. >> what do you think of this. i said, i know -- it was an audition that he had done. i think your wife jessica had shot it, right? >> yeah. >> it's him at the podium and he's doing the mountaintop speech and what i noticed immediately is there's an uncanny resemblance to martin luther kij which i never noticed before. i thought, oh, you do look like him. i said the speech is good but you need to go deeper. >> let's talk about "selma." you play annie lee cooper who lived to over 100 years old and what a strong woman she was. she was denied how many times the right to vote? >> that was her fifth time. that was her fifth time going to register to vote. that's why the movie and all that it represents means so much
8:36 am
to me and one of the reasons why i said yes to the role. i didn't want to but avis sent me a clip of a story about annie lee cooper when she turn 100, and in the story, every day she watched t ""the oprah show"" at0 and had a tuna fish sandwich. you can't deny that. all those ancestors who are part of our legacy, my legacy, kept getting up and trying. the fact you go and you're denied and then growler home an then you study the constitution and you go again and you know that going you could risk your life or have your life burned down. >> i'm old enough to have heard dr. martin king live and know john lewis and med josea williams. what's amazing about this is it reminds us that every step has
8:37 am
been a strug >> yeah. >> and it continues today. but we see here, you know, that you really cannot give up and you have to push. we see it today in other kinds of incidents taking place in the country. >> you know what's remarkable to me about the parallels is that there was such a strategic rigorous discipline and that there was a definite plan for this is what we want, we want the right to vote, and this is our intention in going about getting it that and there were divisions within the community. >> there were divisions within the community how to do it. >> but they also knew -- and they were so young too -- they could lose their life. >> today if you peacefully protest you would not lose your life. they knew they could lose their life and they diddet anyway. >> yes. and you see the high price paid for the privilege including the right to vote which we take for granted. you see here that's something not to be taken lightly. >> i had someone come to the
8:38 am
event last weekend with the legends, with the civil rights leaders and showing the film and i got a lovely note from someone who was pretty prominent who saidly never not vote again after seeing that movie. >> mark evans, a paramount producer, a young girl, 17 came with her grandmother, and she thought selma was going to be about a girl. her grandmother told her nothing about it. take us behind the scenes. i love the scene whatwhere you have the extras and they have to say the "n" word. i love this story. >> ava who's making history with this nomination because she's the first african-american ever will to be nominated as a director, she had prior to this done a small film called "middle of nowhere" with a budget of like $200,000. this is the first time she's had major cast members and 500 extras and you have all these people on set who are asked to play racist.
8:39 am
i love the white lady from "selma" who comes up and says, now, do you want me to use the "n" word or say the actual word. ava said, no i want you to say the word. she said, do you want me to say the actually word or -- >> it wouldn't have quite the same power. >> david, your dad didn't want you to be an actor. >> no. i'm from nigerian parents so the idea of the arts and all that, when i would tell him i want to be an actor, he's like, why do you want to be with actor, all those promiscue us lady >> now he says you're a scholar? stoo tell the story about when you got the scholarship. >> so that was his opinion about acting but then i got a scholarship to go to the lawn
8:40 am
academy. >> all right. a scholar. we can tell everyone back home you're a scholar. >> not a lady boy. >> is it amazing there's not been a major film made about martin luther king? >> it is amazing. except for such a time as this that this would be the film? what's really incredible about the film is we did not intend to do a biopic. you need a mini series for that. it's really focused on those three months where he was negotiating with president johnson. >> but the timing, oprah, would be now. >> isn't it. >> the timing is great. >> the parallel between selma and ferguson are indisputable. as i look at it, ferguson became an american problem yochl view the same thing with sema. voting rights, denial of voting rights. the minute it became bloody
8:41 am
sunday it bake an american problem. >> 25,000 people in new york city marching. >> 25 people marching across the bridge and martin luther king's children said to me last week is for the first time someone has captured dad's essence. that's you. david oyelowo. i'll sayoyellow-wow. >> how hard was it to do that? >> it was seven years. i had god tell me i was going to play this role. when he tells you, you start to prepare. you know, the opportunity met one that desire, met up with oprah, met up with ava, and, yes, there was a weight gain, there was shaving my hairline back but there's the spiritual aspect. >> look at that poster. look that fat roll on your neck.
8:42 am
>> gone now. >> the shooting for you was the first day that miya died and when i got the news, i thought there's no way oprah is going to be able to do it. >> ava said you don't have do it. it was the theme where i walked into the registrar's office. i saidly use it and give it to maya. >> she said, take it all the way. >> take it all the way. >> that day tip employ feed you to me because you were dealing with miya's loss, shooting that scene where you got hit by the sheriff and you said, i'm trying to negotiate getting clippers on that same day. day in the life. >> literally i got punched taking down and running up to the fax machine and trying to put in a bid for the clippers. >> what? what? no, no. that price point is not fun. >> we know oprah knows how to
8:43 am
deliver a punch. >> yes, i know that first hand. >> the hardest thing in the film for me was you knew what was going to happen when you saw the kids in the church. >> yes. ava felt that that was a really important as marker for the times because that actually -- the bombing had occurred the year before. so that was a part of the essence of why the need to vote, the need to have black people experience their sense of freedom. >> one of the things is that ginn the voting rights act, 1965, i went back and looked. 13 states have passed more restrictive voter i.d. laws in the last three years, that states are trying to make it harder to vote. >> yeah. this very act that was passed, that was fought with blood, it was dysman telled as of last year, the notion being that the country has changed enough that we no longer need the broken
8:44 am
rights act. one of the things the film does is you see the parallels two between selma and ferguson and you see the country hasn't changed that much. so the notion that we no longer need the voting rights act, i think, is criminal. >> it hasn't changed enough but yet david speaks of being from another country and marveling at the -- at what we've accomplished in the short amount of time since, you know, civil rights. >> that's amazing about what you symbolize in the film. you could have been annie lee cooper, and here you are. >> i'm so happy for you both really. i'm so, so excited about it. >> it is the best movie. is the best movie. >> thank you. thank you for watching it. for finding the time to watch it. listen. i saw it -- i mean i've seen it as a producer over and over. so i saw it for the sixth time last night in the theater with other people. i still cry every time. every time. particularly when the old footage is mixed with the actual

film, when you see black people and white people joining together across that bridge, you know. a lot of that footage was cbs. >> yes. they say "turn on cbs! turn on cbs!" . thank you, oprah and david o

it's about getting to the finish line. in life, it's how you get there that matters most. like when i found out i had a blood clot in my leg. my doctor said that it could travel to my lungs and become an even bigger problem. so he talked to me about xarelto®. >>xarelto® is the first oral prescription blood thinner proven to treat and help prevent dvt and pe that doesn't require regular blood monitoring or changes to your diet. for a prior dvt i took warfarin, which required routine blood testing
8:48 am
and dietary restrictions. not this time. while i was taking xarelto®, i still had to stop racing, but i didn't have to deal with that blood monitoring routine. >>don't stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of dvt and pe, with no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for me. ask your doctor about xarelto® today.

help lower a1c. here's how: the kidneys allow sugar to be absorbed back into the body. invokana® reduces the amount of sugar allowed back in, and sends some sugar out through the process of urination. and while it's not for weight loss, it may help you lose some weight. invokana® can cause important side effects, including dehydration, which may cause some people to have loss of body water and salt. this may also cause you to feel dizzy, faint, lightheaded, or weak especially when you stand up. other side effects may include kidney problems, genital yeast infections, urinary tract infections, changes in urination, high potassium in the blood, or increases in cholesterol. do not take invokana® if you have severe kidney problems or are on dialysis or if allergic to invokana® or its ingredients. symptoms of allergic reaction may include rash, swelling, difficulty breathing or swallowing. if you experience any of these symptoms, stop taking invokana® and call your doctor right away or go to
8:59 am
the nearest hospital. tell your doctor about any medical conditions, medications you are taking, and if you have kidney or liver problems. using invokana® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may increase risk of low blood sugar. it's time. lower your blood sugar with invokana®. imagine loving your numbers. ask your doctor about invokana®.
