There is no evidence to support the "Chemical Imbalance" theory. It is something that has been made up by the psychiatrists and the drug companies. The fact that they are doing direct to public advertising to push their drugs is appalling! Legalized drug pushers pushing their drugs in magazines, TV and internet is far worse than the drug pusher at the school playground. It makes them sound so legitimate to a naive public who are only now beginning to learn about what these drugs can really do to you. I SAY: "DO NOT ALLOW ADVERTISING IN PRINT, TV AND INTERNET MEDIUMS OF PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS!
