|Have you noticed how many prescription drug
commercials there are on TV these days? You can cure your toe fungus but
your liver and kidneys might shut down. You can treat your irritable
bowel syndrome but your testicles might drop off. Seems the side effects
are worse than the disease you're trying to treat.
But that's not what bothers me. My concern is that the pharmaceutical companies are airing commercials for prescription drugs to us. We can't go to the store and buy these drugs. We can only get them from a doctor, with a prescription. So the commercials tell us to "ask our doctors" if we need this or that drug.
I'm thinking, if you're seeing a doctor that needs your advice about which drugs you need, you might want to think about getting a new doctor.
Just my thoughts.
