I have found that the advertising to general public on drug ads is wrong headed.
An ignorant person is "sold" on the medication and wants it or demands it from his doctor. It is obvious to me that this is a money driven action that profits many involved and hurts the consumer most. I think it is the FDA responisbility to stop this consumer promotion of meds. It is the FDA's responisbility to protect the public from those who are not interested in the true welfare of the indvidual, but are interested in selling and profit making.
Sincerely,
Dr. R Bunch
