PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION- COMMERCIALS !!! (RANT)

THIS IS ONLY A START OF MY RANT ON THIS TOPIC

FIRST! WHY WOULD THEY ADVERTISE PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION TO CONSUMERS (PATIENTS)? THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO PURCHASE THEM! THESE NEED TO BE PRESCRIBED BY A DR…..! 

AGAIN!, WHY ADVERTISE TO CONSUMERS (PATIENTS) SOMETHING ONLY THIER DR CAN PRESCRIBE? ***(COULD IT BE FOR THE “COMPLIANCE” OR MAYBE THE “INFLUENCE” THE PATIENT HAS ON WHAT THE DR PRESCRIBES?)  

Lets talk about these commercials, or medications being advertised—–

EXAMPLE- ANTIDEPRESSANTS- (NON-SPECIFIED)

THEY SAY THAT “ADDING ****** TO YOUR CURRENT TREATMENT MAY BE BENEFICIAL…… BUT——- SIDE EFFECTS MAY INCLUDE”-

  • INCREASED DEPRESSION
  • SUICIDAL THOUGHTS
  • HEART PALPITATIONS
  • ANXIETY
  • ABDOMINAL PAIN
  • DRY MOUTH
  • CONSTIPATION
  • SEIZURES
  • LOSS OF APPETITE, INCREASE OF APPETITE
  • BLACK-OUTS
  • LOSS OF SENSATION IN HANDS AND FEET
  • HALLUCINATIONS
  • LIVER, KIDNEY, AND HEART FAILURE
  • IN RARE OCCASIONS- HAVE RESULTED IN DEATH!

DOESN’T THAT SOUND SWELL?
