GENERAL
I would like to comment on the advertising of drugs and espiecially psychiatric
drugs proported to solve depression. These ads are a constant irritation and
are enough by themself to make one depressed. I understand that there is a great deal of money being made in the media, but stop, enough. Let the medical
professionals diagnose and treat patients. No advertising costs would surely
bring the cost of prescription drugs down.
