I know many of us are on PD meds (myself included), and I do acknowledge that some medications (not just for PD) are miracle drugs and have helped many people. But, have we gone too far as a society in terms taking a drug for everything that ails us in a search for a quick fix solution? I am so tired of seeing drug commercials every day, telling us to talk to our doctors about some advertised medication. The side effects described in the commercials seem almost as bad as what the medication is attempting to fix.
What are your thoughts on the heavy promotion of prescription drugs in the media?
