Dear FDA,

As a stay at home mother I see many commercials promoting drugs that apparently help psychiatric ills every day. These commericals lead one to believe that mental ills are caused by chemical imbalences and can be helped by taking psychiatric drugs. This is not true as the APA has no scientific proof of what a chemical balance is and therefore can not treat an imbalance. It has been shown, however that the side effects of these drugs can lead to many more serious ills and even fatalities. I am tired of seeing these lies spread, please do your part to stop these false advertisements.
