AMA Calls for Ban on Prescription Drug Commercials
Do you ever watch the evening news? I was amazed at how many drug commercials there are. We have a prescription painkiller epidemic, yet every commercial on the news was telling me to ask my doctor about this. If I asked my doctor about all the drugs I saw on TV, he may think I have a serious problem.
The American Medical Association has called for a ban on these awful commercials.
Usually, they use animation to make these commercials more watchable. If you time it out like me, you'll see they spend more time listing side effects than promoting their drug. Anal leakage and stomach bleeding were my favorite side effects.
This was the worst I have seen.
