I do not agree with those medical products promotions made directly to the public.
They are biased and misleading to the medically uneducated public.
Especially the ones promoting psychiatric drugs that supposedly "cure" social discomfort and other invented "disorders". These psychotropic drugs do not cure anything and are based on a false assumption that there is chemical imbalance in the brain. It is a lie.
There is no proven chemical imbalance in anybody's brain. Yet they make us believe so and promote brain damaging pills that supposedly cure those so called imbalances. Those psychiatric drugs are highly dangerous and damaging for the individual taking them and society in general. The results of those psychotropic drugs on people are plainly visible in tragic events like Columbine and other
teenager mass massacres in schools and at home.

If psychiatric drugs now have a big black warning label on them for being highly dangerous they should not be supported by promotions of any kind.

Leave the patient to his doctor along with his recommendations for the proper medecine if he needs any. Many drug free medical alternatives are available and should be the ones promoted to the general public.
