The homeopaths can shake some of this up with water and dilute it until it's all gone: Voila! a new antidepressant with absolutely no adverse effects!

Here's a funny website that demonstrates disease mongering at its extreme. It's for a fictitious drug called Havidol.

More pathetic disease mongering by Big Pharma. When meditation on famine, pestilence and "Married with Children" reruns, or vigorous exercise while wearing shoes that are too tight would have the same effect.

Thanks! Perfect for a cold rainy day at the end of a long dreary week! Feeling my perkiness draining away...

Surely this is a joke. Surely. Please tell me this is a joke.

Former drug rep here--I'm pro antidepressants--but...pro informed choices---too many dr's don't have the time or choose not too explain all the risks or downfalls of medications to patients. Patients need to research, ask questions and make a choice. Every medication has a benefit and a risk--you HAVE to educate yourself and make a choice. Antidepressants have saved so many lifes as well as enhanced so many lives. Antidepressants may have also caused injuries and death. Is your dr prescribing the best medication for you with the best intent?www.bigpharmasexylittlesecret.com
