GENERAL
I find it reprehensible that drug companies make misleading claims about psychiatric (and other)
medications in advertisements. It is far too oversimplified to say that anti-depressants correct
chemical imbalances. It would be better to receive information from health professionals in the first place, but at least uphold a higher standard for honesty in peddling drugs like candy.
