Always Complaining About Drug Commercials? Is Big Pharma Wasting Their Money? — 2 Comments

  1. I purty much make it a point to ignore every commercial, advertisement, article, etc. about such as I learned years ago after working in a medical environment that the power of suggestion has a tendency to have a TERRIBLE effect on a person’s health. 🙂

    I pay attention to my body rather than the ads, etc., and KNOW for sure now when it’s truly in need of medical attention. Then I look into whether or not there are alternatives to pharmaceuticals before I resort to them. Generally, the pharmaceuticals make me sicker than I already was to begin with. Just ask George…he resides in the bathroom. 🙂

    So, I guess my answer is yes, they wasted their money in their efforts to reach me via the screen on my TV and the speakers on my audio stuff. 🙂

    Maybe they ought to put those marketing funds to better use like maybe providing meds to someone who truly needs them and can’t afford them?

  2. I don’t think the answer is big Pharma getting any more into the socialized medicine than they already are. But if they could lower prices – and still provide good return to shareholders and/or put more in to R&D, we would be better off.

    Thanks for playing and enjoy our lovely parting gifts.
