GENERAL
Please put an end to any direct consumer advertising by the psychiatric profession. The advertisements are based on lies and non-scientific data and should be disallowed. There are no real tests for the varied "ailments" that are alleged and the advertisements are solely to get people to believe that they need medication for totally invented illnesses. This is unconscionable. The ads are not for helping people, but for adding to the psychiatric coffers.
