    Maybe I’m all by myself on this but I want them to try to find out what effect a new drug has on heart disease before they start selling it to my doctor. I also want them to look for the unintended consequences of whatever action the drug has before its advertised on tv. What I really want is for them to quit advertising prescription drugs.

    The choice of prescription drug, if and when required (and I’m of the belief they are prescribed way too frequently, in doses that are way too strong), should be a collaborative effort between prescriber and patient — and probably pharmacist, in these times. It should be a dialog. Both doctor and patient should be aware of the potential side effects — especially adverse side effects — and contraindications to any proposed drug therapy. In a state such as Type 2 diabetes, the doctor needs to make a case for the particular class of drug s/he is prescribing (this drug works in this manner, which I feel is best for what we see your body doing). Of course, this would require a certain amount of effort from the patient — not the “gimme a pill to cure it” mentality that so many people seem to have…
