I rather have my doctor suggest what is best for me. Then I can go home and do my own research. Pharmaceutical commercials are some of the worst. I think I had heard somewhere that we are the only country in the world that allow it.
I think I read something on that as well. Due to health reasons my doctor is very selective on what I can take and explains what I really should watch out for.
Most of these drugs have names I cannot even pronounce. My doctor has no worries with me.
I honestly can't either, I usually have to describe the commercial
I try and forget them
I see new drugs all the time... some of them can't be very old.
How is a doctor supposed to keep up with all that crap?
I wouldn't ask a doctor if one of those drugs were right for me, anymore than I would ask my mechanic... if he needs more money, then I was billed....for the repair.
That is a really good point
I do good to remember what day of the week it is let alone memorize medication
My brain is etched with too much permanent, important information....
Like Brady Bunch songs and the formula for winning at tic tac toe.
My brain is exactly the same way
