Ever notice that most of the TV ads for prescription meds ...

                                            ...don't CURE anything?

                                             going crazy

They want you to '...ask your doctor...' to start you on a drug that only keeps symptoms away ... and only for as long as you continue to take their drug.

  • Of course. If you're cured, you stop buying the medicine, so the profit is a one-time deal.

    Chronic problems like arthritis and incontinence may never have a cure, but sufferers need relief.

  • true. most things ease symptoms (allegedly) and not cure a damn thing
