GENERAL
Doctors and health care professionals NOT PHARMACEUTICAL MARKETING DEPARTMENTS should be their patients' source for information on medical drugs and other products. Television and radio ads, with Marketing Professionals' graphics and "high speed" side-effects warnings are DECEPTIVE AND UNETHICAL AND MANIPULATIVE. These ads should be stopped, just as ads for tobacco and hard liquor were stopped.
