| The advertisement of anti-depressants is unethical and must stop. More people are learning about the harm caused by them thanks to the black box warnings. The majority of the Anti-depressants I see advertised will most likely
be the illegal street drugs of the future. Not so long ago Cocaine was the pshychiatrists drug of choice invented by them to mask man's abberations and social gaps, look what that drug has done to our society. Ecstasy and Rittalin invented by psychiatrists have also flooded our streets as recreational drugs of choice. Advertising a pill for every problem is not the solution and the practice of doing so must be banned from television, radio and billboards.
