The Push to Take More and More Prescription Drugs | MyPetPeeves.com

The Push to Take More and More Prescription Drugs

I absolutely hate commercials about prescription medications. Why do we need these? If we need a prescription for something we go to the doctor and they prescribe what we need for what we have. We don't need to sit at home becoming hypochondriacs thinking we have every illness on earth and then go to the doctor and TELL the doctor what we need. It's all backwards and the reason = $$$$$. Pharmaceutical companies pushing medications to make a profit. Half the stuff we get prescribed we don't need. For example, I went to the doctor after suffering with severe acid reflux. They prescribed medication strength acid reflux medication, which by the way doesn't cure acid reflux, it just calms the symptom and pain and nastiness. The doctor didn't even address the CAUSE. They just push the medication. So after some research and a visit to a naturopathic doctor I discovered I was allergic to wheat products. Once I stopped eating things with wheat the acid reflux went away COMPLETELY. I never have it now and don't need any kind of medication at all.

This is just one example of many. Depression medications; they are being pushed on everyone. Sometimes some people have a hormonal imbalance and need to address THAT and once they do they don't have depression. Sometimes different foods can mess up your brain chemistry. There are so many other options, we don't need a prescription for EVERY problem we have!

And what is the deal with making it so the people who might actually NEED prescription medication (i.e. the elderly) can’t even get it covered by insurance. They have to choose between medication and food and shelter. CRAZY! But that’s a whole other rant.

But I'm telling you, it's not about health, it's about money. I am glad there are medications for occasions when legitimately needed, don’t get me wrong. I am just saying we don’t all need a medication for every little aliment when there are alternatives.

Comments

Agreed.

Ever notice that these drug commercail take their sweet time espousing the virtues of a drug but rush through the side effects so fast that you barely hear them?

Another peeve with these commercials is when they advise you to check with a dr before taking this drug.  STUPID considering you have to gat prescription from a doctor!

Absolutely!!

What I don't get is these pharmaceutical companies telling you that you can make a phone call for FREE SAMPLES!!  How in the world can you get FREE SAMPLES unless you have a prescription from your md to take the drug in the first place??

 

since they rush through them

Here's the part about these meds have that the commercials always rush throughj so you never hear them...


Some patients may experience the following:

Your mother may suddenly begin to wear army boots.

Your shit may still stink.

You may be caught red handed short changing the workplace coffee collection box by a nickel or two.

Some users experience sudden and complete hair loss but only during sex. Soooo if you're such a loser that you actually use this bogus crap drug, the odds of this happening to you are nil. I mean, you, having sex? ROTFLMAO

A very rare occurance is that the world as we know it will end and you will be doomed to hell for eternity and then some.

... Use only as directed.

 

Don't worry about it once

Don't worry about it once Obama takes over healthcare you will only be able to take those drugs that the government says you can. Don't believe me I have government healthcare my wife needs a medicine that cost 800 bucks a month. NOT APPROVED. So much for great healthcare. Oh and it is the only medicine that actually helps.

I believe that!

I agree, if Obama gets that healthcare bill passed we are going to be in for a rude awakening. I am just fine with my private insurance, thank you. If people can't get insurance then fine, it can be like a welfare program but I don't want government healthcare shoved down my throat. I want the choice.

You only get choice if you

You only get choice if you get an abortion.

Obsession with that one single abortionissue is killing millions

Tens of millions of of Americans have ZERO health care because the one single sticking point to resolving the problem is obstructionists on the right wing, the republican assholes, who are 100% obsessed with abortion.

So you'll kill real people, children and adults, people with sisters and brothers and parents who love them and children who depend upon them because of your sick and twisted warped minds all stuck on fetuses? Get a life. Look at how many you are hurting, even killing for no gain whatsoever. Abortion has been proven to go on whether abolished or not just exactly as prohibition didn't work for alcohol. More people got cheaper liquor during those years, crime skyrocketed and abortions will be less safe. All of that is Certain. It will go on. You can not stop it. So why hurt so many millions of other people when you are fighting a losing battle in the first place. Who gains anything by this? It is clear who loses. We all do. Don't be an ass.

Again who is going to die?

Again who is going to die? Please tell me TGIX why the government will not approve my wifes medicine? Please TGIX please tell me when it is the only medicine that actually helps? Please tell me why TGIX I had to pay 5000 bucks of a 7000 dollar MRI? How come my government healthcare did not take care of that TGIX? Please tell me why I just got a bill 164 dollars for having my bladder checked? WHY DIDN'T FUCKING OBAMA PAY FOR THAT TGIX? So tell me TGIX if the government does not pay for the next mri I will not have the money to pay the rest of it and DIE.  Why because of government healthcare. I will not be able to get an MRI because my government insurance WONT PAY FOR IT. So please TGIX give me 5 grand next time me or my family has to have one. Oh and this shit did not until the democrats took over.

 

I really do not expect a response from you not an intelligent one anyway.

Just as I thought my post was

Just as I thought my post was ignored because it didn't fit into there little world.

I can't stop laughing

While it pains me to know that the system has failed and is hurting people such as you and your wife you have just argued against your own argument in a huge way, probably unwillingly, you do not even realize it, but that is what you just did.

First, you tell us the current system does not work.

I say it must be revised.

Then you say it must not be revised because it does not now work and for proof you offer us this example of your wife's need for explensive medicine that is not covered under the current system which you must love so much since you reject the attempt to reform it.

wowwwww

Is there a cure for laughter this hard folks? And if so, will the gov't help me pay for it?   :-D

Your twisting it TGIX the

Your twisting it TGIX the system I am in is the system that Obama wants for all of us. I retired and earned it now any dipshit will get it. Fuck it if this thing passes I am going to quit my job why work I will get it for free and the unemployment forever.

THIS healthcare plan isn't the answer

This healthcare plan isn't going to be the savior of the people that you think it will be. Have you READ the bill? You can look the entire thing up unedited but here are some of the finer points that people have objections to:

Page 16: States that if you have insurance at the time of the bill becoming law and change, you will be required to take a similar plan. If that is not available, you will be required to take the government option!
• Page 22: Mandates audits of all employers that self-insure!
• Page 29: Admission: your health care will be rationed!
• Page 30: A government committee will decide what treatments and benefits you get (and, unlike an insurer, there will be no appeals process)
• Page 42: The "Health Choices Commissioner" will decide health benefits for you. You will have no choice. None.
• Page 50: All non-US citizens, illegal or not, will be provided with free healthcare services.
• Page 58: Every person will be issued a National ID Healthcard.
• Page 59: The federal government will have direct, real-time access to all individual bank accounts for electronic funds transfer.
• Page 65: Taxpayers will subsidize all union retiree and community organizer health plans (example: SEIU, UAW and ACORN)
• Page 72: All private healthcare plans must conform to government rules to participate in a Healthcare Exchange.
• Page 84: All private healthcare plans must participate in the Healthcare Exchange (i.e., total government control of private plans)
• Page 91: Government mandates linguistic infrastructure for services; translation: illegal aliens
• Page 95: The Government will pay ACORN and Americorps to sign up individuals for Government-run Health Care plan.
• Page 102: Those eligible for Medicaid will be automatically enrolled: you have no choice in the matter.
• Page 124: No company can sue the government for price-fixing. No "judicial review" is permitted against the government monopoly. Put simply, private insurers will be crushed.
• Page 127: The AMA sold doctors out: the government will set wages.
• Page 145: An employer MUST auto-enroll employees into the government-run public plan. No alternatives.

I don't know about you but that stuff scares the shit out of me. Especially this: Page 59 - The federal government will have direct, real-time access to all individual bank accounts for electronic funds transfer.

Page 30 - A government committee will decide what treatments and benefits you get (and, unlike an insurer, there will be no appeals process)

Page 42 - The "Health Choices Commissioner" will decide health benefits for you. You will have no choice. None.

While I agree there needs to be something done for people without health insurance, THIS isn't it and it is way too intrusive and controlling and the American people are not having a say in it. There will be no "choice" when it comes to healthcare anymore. If they want everyone in the country to have healthcare then find another way but do it without crushing everyone's freedom in the process.

That is scary

I'll say it, if this bill passes I'm gonna start looking for a new country to live in.

They are making Tri Care

They are making Tri Care better and they are going to give us better coverage thank you the American Tax Payer for paying my insurance. I would also like to thank Strange Quark and TGIX for there contributions to my insurance. Thanks a lot guys now I will not have to worry anymore.
