Do you think pharmaceutical companies have too much power in health-care?
Too much power?: hard to say, but under our imperfect political system I don't believe they do.
Have power?: of course they do.
...and in government.
I would like to see Pharmaceutical companies prohibited from advertising to the public. It's better they are required to deal with physicians and pharmacists who really understand all aspects of the medications.
I agree, entirely. The "ask your doctor" phrase needs to stop.
My biggest concern is medical insurance companies. It seems to me that when I was young, the prices I paid for doctors and drugs without insurance were less than the price I pay now with insurance...and that's before the cost of the insurance.
