Regarding "Direct to Consumer Advertising"
The commercials are misleading, too general and don't talk about the science behind the drugs - AND ALL TALK ABOUT THE SIDE EFFECTS in a fun voice intimating that they are not really harmful, when in so many cases they are very harmful.
PLEASE SEE THAT GLORIFYING DRUGS IS NOT THE ANSWER TO HEALTH. THEY SHOULD BE USED RESPONSIBLY WITH DOCTORS DOING THEIR RESEARCH ON WHAT THEY FIND USEFUL AND MAKING PROFESSIONAL OPINIONS VERSUS THIS CIRCUS.
