| I don't watch much TV but when I see the drug companies producing psychiatric drugs advertising every single spot on some programs I get very concerned.
The fact is that the chemical imbalance they're trying to correct doesn't exist. The chemical cocktail they're serving up to unsuspecting Americans can cause a wild variety of unknown or mispredicted side effects on people.
If I was going to have such a wild mood swing that I'd go actually insane and do damage to someone as a result of my taking one of these drugs I'd think twice. Yet the advertising shows a beautiful and tranquil serenity is achieved by taking these products. It is, frankly, bs.
Please do something about this false and misleading advertising which is helping poison our society.
