I am against psychiatric drug advertising, especially of the "chemical imbalance" myth. This promotes abuse and misinformation by the drug industry,and omits the successes of 'natural' or less harmful therapies that have been shown to be successful. There is "NO" drug that can successfully
and safely balance the psychiatric/mental disorders, and evidence is now revealing that often it causes more problems than it helps - sometimes irreversible damage or death. But that will never be revealed in the ad.
