When I see Medical Commercials on TV - I change the channel. When they're in my magazines they are ripped out and thown away first thing! It is just NOT OKAY to advertise to the public. Medicine should be used to heal the sick. Not to make billions on the backs of peoples health and insecurities. It's a last line of defense - not a first. (The First being healthing eating & excercise.) I'm sorry - it's just wrong.

Pharma should have a catalog for the doctor to read and order from and that's it.
