  • Doctors make money out of illness, prisons make money by ensuring their customers won't get rehabilitated, so they return. Doctors make you sick with medicine so that they can make money out of you coming back. Capitalism is the best, but prisons and hospitals need to be able to make more money off of people who don't return.

  • The greatest cultural shock of my life was when I arrived in North America the first time in 1984 and saw the farmaceutical commercials. I thought they were unbelievably unethical, and I still do. It tells a lot of Ismo’s genius that he can derive comedy from them.

  • Yes, it is unbelievable how many commercials there are and how brain rapey it is. I haven't watched broadcast tv in many years; so, I don't even know how bad it is. But even online tv like Hulu got pretty bad (though you can buy a less commercials option I think). And FIworld is now ridiculous as well.

  • And in my country, %90 of the precribed drugs are paid by our universal health care system. Yet pharma companies and advertising firms aaand all the media want to start advertising that "innocent" otc drugs. People, that ads and PRs they pay will be added to your medical bill. And side effects, advers effects, etc... Leave it to docs and pharmacists.

  • Who the fuck advertises prescription drugs? Stuff you can get without a prescription, I can understand. Back when I was still watching TV regularly, they'd say (in Switzerland) "for risks and side-effects read the pamphlet and ask your doctor or apothecary". Apparently, they've since decided that saying "risks and side-effects" is turning people off too much, so they've now changed it to "this is an approved medicine, let a qualified expert advise you".

    • @Jaana Garber The point is not about the need to have commercials. Everyone understands that you need commercials to run privately funded television channels and shows. The point is about the absurdity of commercials for prescription drugs. I can only imagine how the US physicians must feel about patients who ask to prescribe them some medication “because they saw it on TV”.

  • What's very ironic is that some antidepressants have "suicidal thoughts" listed as a side effect. One time I got prescribed one and the doctor said "it will get worse in the beginning" and then gave me a pat on the back as if to say "you got this kid" :D Turns out no, I didn't got it. Quit halfway through otherwise I wouldn't be here to tell the story.
