I think is is like drug pushing to market these unproven drugs direct to the consumer. These ads should go to our doctors, who could learn the adverse effects and perhaps recommend alternatives, when we come in with our ailments. I think too many dangerous drugs get popular because people are marketed to DIRECTLY and then (acting informed) request them from their doctors. This practice should stop! These are drugs, not pizza.
