GENERAL
While certain psychiatric drugs may affect chemical balances in humans, I would like the FDA (or psychiatric drug companies) to present the scientific evidence of this before alowing consumer targeted advertisments to makle this claim. Psychiatric medication should not be advertised to lay audiences especialy when many of the claims made by drug companies about effectiveness and safety are not substatiated in any adequate way. The FDA must give greater scrutiny to the corporate science behind psychiatric drug research.
