    How is it possible that we take medications by the millions that may or may not work or be the best choice. Even physicians who read the literature, make evidence based choices and then ethically discuss the data with patients are frequently at a disadvantage because the data is flawed. Pharmaceutical Companies choose which studies they release. They don't compare their drugs against other drugs but against placebos. The real question is why the FDA doesn't require all data to be released and make the pharmaceutical companies prove that their drugs are indeed better than nothing or better than other drugs already available. Also, it's almost impossible for drugs to be taken off the market once they are approved.
    Another problem is the intense way that physicians are marketed to prescribe the new, best drugs. What is needed is good science.

    When commercials are shown on tv about a new drug for something, the list of side effects is amazing. Do your research. Check out the drugs you are familiar with. See for yourself.
