To Whom it May Concern;

This is in regards to consumer advertising of psychiatric drugs. Please understand, please DISCOVER FOR YOURSELVES that the psychiatric community espouses the correcting of 'chemical imbalances' (which they cannot prove) as a justification for promoting such via commercial advertisement. And if they are saying as well that these drugs are 'safe' and 'effective' that too is baldly false; they are LYING to the American public for the almighty buck, and much worse I fear.

The FDA must get their ethics together on this and stop bringing shame and disgrace to the people of this country who put their TRUST in you, and depend on you to keep America safe and SANE. KNOW what is ACTUALLY going on in the field of chemical creativness, especially as it concerns anything coming from the psychiatric arena. Those guys are NUTS!! And they are spouting nothing but FALSE DATA. They even ADMIT, ON TAPE NO LESS, that they cannot prove what they are now foisting off on us!!

If I am to understand that you are considering recinding their rights to communicate that is NOT the way to handle it as this can lead to utter anarchy. That is not the solution: the solution is to stop being lazy and FIND OUT what is ACTUALLY going on insofar as what the APA is espousing, and FIND OUT that these are lies. I've HAD IT with the APA!!!!!!!!!

Yours in concern for our future,
Diane Ash
