Re: Doctor visit

Oh, I'm quite sure that with all the pens, pencils, notepads, coffee
mugs, free conference trips to exotic locales, calendars, etc., etc, ad
nauseum that brand names of drugs are well implanted into physician's
brains...drug companies spend a small fortune on these goodies to insure
that it is so and drug company reps. are constantly visiting their
offices to make sure of this as well. Makes me SICK!!!

Subject: Re: [CHAT] Doctor visit

I think their marketing teams have decided that just giving a hint like
that<br>will encourage your curiosity, which stimulates interest so you
will ask<br>your doctor. Then, since the subject has been brought up,
he/she'll discuss<br>its benefits with you. Otherwise, he may be too
busy to bring it up. Even<br>if it is not applicable to you, the more
often your doctor hears a patient<br>ask, "What's this Nexium I've been
seeing on TV?", the more it reinforces<br>the brand name in the doctor's
head and the greater the likelyhood he/she<br>will prescribe it when
indicated.<br><br>Kitty<br><br>----- Original Message ----- <br>From:

Sometimes I think the ads should be on "Saturday<br>> Night Live" as
spoofs. They are really ridiculous.<br>><br>> zem<br>><br>>
