The ads I see betray the viewer in to thinking that their mental "condition", which is usually normal anyway, is somehow a real illness - as if it actually has to do with a correctable physical abnormality. This is a lie and a fraud. These advertisements play with people's emotions so that they will buy a drug because they are feeling sad or down. The lack of ethics in this kind of marketing needs to be stopped - NOW.
