The worst thing pharmaceutical companies did was decide that they weren't going to heal illnesses but instead create medications that cause others. Don't believe me? Listen to the possible side effects instead of changing the channel during a commercial pimping the latest drug release. This is the real reason why there is an opiod crisis! You might go to your doctor hoping to be healed but eventually you're going to discover the only prescriptions you'll get are just so you can live your problems!

Doctors must get so frustrated with patients coming in and saying what they have and what drug they need. And if a doctor tells them they're wrong they're probably really stubborn about it. I'm glad marketing prescription drugs is illegal where I live.

Damn that free lunch joke hit home real hard. For years my mom brought home huge aluminum tins full of leftovers that drug reps brought to her office. Zoes kitchen, Moes, so on. Saved money at least

My mum's a practice nurse in the uk, and because of our laws around advertising drugs to the public, she often gets drug reps wh bring in food and the sort. As far as i can tell, they don't have much affect on her (largely because, as far as i can tell, it's basically illegal to pay doctors like that, not that she would take the money), but i always loved it when she got drug reps because it meant i'd end up getting nice food, particularly the sweet stuff that my mum never likes. She doesn't always bring home food tho, because quite alot of her patients are poor, and she knows they won't be able to heal properly if they are hungry.

I used to design the SA for pharmas, I know what they do, like the conferences, and trips. They track through pharmacies what each doctor prescribes in their 'territory.' I am talking cruises and Caribbean vacations, etc, prizes for top prescribers. I designed the software for pharmacy visits as well. It's so unethical...but healthcare for profit is a serious problem .

A doctor tried to prescribe me Advair Diskus once, but I couldn't tolerate the taste. A few years later, the same doctor mentioned that it had a bunch of side effects that had been discovered in the intervening time. So thanks, sensory hypersensitivity (I guess). Also, at 9:19, you compare Wellbutrin to methamphetamine. They're in the same class of molecules (substituted phenethylamines). Also, both are stimulants. So your comparison is surprisingly accurate. And at 14:54, you talk about a $0.04 "Food and Beverage." I would guess that whatever it was was a portion of a bulk purchase at wholesale prices -- food at wholesale prices is ridiculously cheap.

Same in Sweden, but we need to remember that we have a say in what choises are being made for us and we are allowed to switch doctors. I used to go online and ask my friends what kind of antidepressants they took and how they made them feel in order to find the right choice for me. It's sad that it has to be this way but we need to be educated in the choices we make nowadays and listen to the people who have been there and can tell us about the real side effects.
omsnaga (6 дней назад)
Of course everyone is different and what might work for my friend might not work for me- but at least I'll get the truth from my friend. Always look up peoples experiences before going on a new perscription!

There is a more easy way to tackle this. Pass a legislation in the federal congress, compelling every doctor to prescibe only GENERIC MEDICINES. The prescription should only have the molecular name of the drug. The brand name, should not be used. For newer drugs, for which the drug company may have exclusive patent rights, this may not be possible. Even then, commonly used 80% of drugs are already Off patent, Once the drug is off patent, immediately only Generic medicines, with just name of drug printed on the strip, should be encouraged. For each drug, we have atleast 20 different brand names, marketed by many companies. Next exclusive patent right duration may be reduced to just five years. With all these reforms, US stock market Dow jones index will fall drastically, because, the shares of these pharma companies are most sought after in the market.

I think the US needs to seriously start thinking about generic drugs. Do they exist over there?? Are doctors forced to follow patients wishes, relating to the choice of generic over branded drugs? Cheers

I am currently a medical intern and let me tell you, I spent only 5 days at a private clinic and saw at least 5 pharmaceutical sales men come in, ask the doctor to prescribe more drugs in order to increase their sales and clear out their stocks, offer gifts and leave.

So much fraud, greed, and corruption in the pharmaceutical industry, and yet if you question the safety and/or effectiveness of vaccines, the sheeple jump down your throat. Why, when it comes to vaccines, are they suddenly blind, deaf, and dumb, and willing to trust these multi-billion dollar corporations to have their children's best interest at heart??

Big Pharma are the biggest crooks out there. Sometimes, holding the most desperate of patients medications for ransom. No one can tell me that ANY drug, not filled with gold, costs anywhere NEAR $300,000 a year, yet there ARE cancer and AIDS medications that cost that. Let me rephrase . . . that is what they CHARGE for it. Because they can. There NEEDS TO BE REGULATION on the allowable mark-up on drugs. X% mark-up allowable. The USA is the worst for this, but these dying patients (which can easily be you) will get no relief from the current president (tRump). I bet that website isn't even up anymore. It's bad enough in my country, but at least we're only paying for medication, and can get help paying that too. I don't know what people in the States do - die, I guess.

Maybe people who need prescription drugs should do more research before taking prescription drugs. Just because your doctor gave u a prescription doesn't mean u have to take it especially if u have no idea what u are going to take. I wish I had done more research on the drugs doctors prescribed me. Yeah the prescription drugs I took probably worked but I still should have done more research and asked more questions. Instead of trusting someone who all I know about them is that they are a doctor. How would I know if the Dr I'm seeing is legit? It's definitely not by the diplomas they have on their wall because I can't tell the difference between a fake diploma and really one especially if the fake diploma looks exactly like a real diploma. I bet people who go to see a doctor don't ask if the doctor is actually a Dr.

Unfortunately, this video and others on this topic paint this as black and white where not seeing drug reps at all is the best option. I know plenty of doctors who see drug reps that don't change their prescribing habits. They do it to help get samples for patients in need, and keep the door open for their patients to get "foundation assistance" for their medicine. Essentially, that is when a drug company gives their drug out at a reduced price to someone with poor insurance or high deductibles or large co-pay. If a doctor severs those relationships, they can make life worse for their patients. Of course you should only prescribe off label if something is very well studied and you should be straight up with reps. Don't take large amounts of money that you know you didn't earn or change your prescribing habits. Also, if a doctor's staff gets free lunch, only the doctor's meal will be listed. You can easily see the difference between $10,000 which can include funding for educational meetings about the disease the drug treats vs $500,000. If your doctor can't explain the amount listed, there is a problem.

But, Why do "Moral" Dems like Crooked Booker, Menendez, Warner and others quietly behind closed doors vote against and defeat less expensive pharma entering the US market from Canada over 2 years ago citing "safety". I'm confident fixed income elderly citizens wouldn't be pleased with these deceiving hypocritical scoundrels putting their pharma lobbyist(s) "Safety" interests/pockets before Americans financial and health needs. Just sharing the fact(s) however, Google it if you like.

Marketing to doctors is bad, marketing to customers is also bad (you covered this in case different episode). Then who can these companies market to? Just say it. Marketing pharmaceuticals to anyone is a bad idea. Informing doctors is one thing, giving them incentive to sell should be Illegal. Advertising prescription drugs to consumers with no medical expertise should also be banned.

There's nothing magic about it. IF you can provide actual scientific, verifiable, and repeatable evidence showing how vaccines are unsafe, then please do so. Otherwise, you have to accept the fact that the reason there's no genuine commentary on the damage done by vaccines, it's because there is no basis for such.

On top of that, the pharmaceutical political lobbying is H-U-G-E across the globe. NOT just in the United States. It is a political cash cow and slush fund for the corrupted Globalists! The medical strides made are good but, their political influence and control is a disease riding on the backs of the despondent who hope their medical problems have a cure. Good intentions paved by disgusting political and profit driven sway! BTW, in particular, those in power today (in the USA) are killing the profit margin for the pharmaceutical industry with the War of Opioids! Take Down the pharmaceutical cartels! Yes. Although, the backlash is they will raise the price of "approved" drugs...that's a real F'k stick! Capitalism is good if driven by free-market forces that work to constrain corruption and abuses but, that's not today's environment of the profit driven political lobbying and marketing interventionism tactics by the pharmaceutical industry! You all are naive if you believe we are in Afghanistan to liberate "the people", fight "Terrorism", keep Americans safe, and spread Democratic ideology! Oil and Drugs, baby -- Don't take my word for it follow the money you will find the power behind it! They are not protecting "OUR" interests. We are there protecting "THEIR" investments.

I do need to mention something about off-label prescriptions A use for a medication being non-FDA regulated doesn't inherently mean that the use is *wrong*, only that the FDA hasn't approved it. There are a couple medications available as generics that have off-label use that are provably safe. - Estrodial is used as birth control. Off-label, it's used for hormone replacement therapy; to ease symptoms of menopause in cisgender women, and makes physical changes in transgender women. - Spironolactone is used as a diuretic. Off-label, it's used for its anti-androgen effects; clearing up acne, as well as aiding estrodial in transgender women (without either it or another anti-androgen, the estrodial has little effect) - Finasteride is used to treat hair loss. Off label it's also used as a weaker anti-androgen in transgender women. - Progesterone is used to regulate periods and aid fertility. Off-label, again, it's used by transgender women as one of the hormones that we simply do not produce enough of. - Testosterone is used to help treat breast cancer and to aid fertility. Off-label, it makes physical changes in transgender men, and since it has an overshadowing effect on estrogen, trans men don't need anti-estrogens like trans women need anti-androgens. There's a pattern here. Of course the FDA wouldn't approve anything for trans people. The point: It's the use case and the evidence, not the fact that it's simply off-label, that makes an off-label use of medication bad. Of course pharmaceutical companies encouraging off-label use of their medications as a panacea is a horrible practice. But it's not the fact that it's off-label that makes it a bad practice.

Whether you're a consumer, politician, doctor or executive, all of us are wise to think about the marketing that's influencing us as we make decisions. If we delude ourselves into thinking it doesn't affect us, we're just willfully blinding ourselves and giving it more power. If you're saying "no, it really doesn't work on me," you're wrong. I spent several years of my career doing data science on the way people interact with advertising. Here's the reality: *everybody is influenced by the advertising they experience.* If your brain is working, it's forming associations based on the things you see, hear and experience. If some of that is advertising, that advertising is influencing the way you will think in the future. (Odds are good that you've already thought about some specific brand while reading this comment just because I mentioned advertising.) The mistake people think is that they imagine advertising "works" if it somehow overrules your brain and makes you go buy something right away. Most advertising is not designed to trigger an immediate action, and no person is this suggestible. Instead, it's designed to make you more likely to think of a specific brand in a situation, or to shape the way you think about that brand's products. This is not necessarily malicious or harmful, but we should be mindful of its influence on us.

Yeah i can verify this is all true. I worked as a Vet tech before going to vet school and the drug reps would always come by and bring us all breakfast and free samples. They would even have multiple clinics compete in sales of certain monthly preventatives and which ever clinic sold the most over a 1 month period would get taken out to dinner all on their tab. So like we would sell say $10k worth of a drug and they would take us out to a $1000 dinner the next month

Pharmaceuticals DO NOT CURE. And that's messed up because we take these pills and "medication" to feel better but pharmaceuticals will most likely cause you more harm than Good. BY LAW, Pharmaceuticals are required to tell you about harmful side effects. MEDICATION is not meant to have side effects EVER. This is the BS pharmaceuticals feed us into thinking it's NORMAL but when you're trying to recover, you should never experience any side effects.
