Do you believe all pharmaceutical companies use illegal practices to sell and market their products?
I definitely feel this way. I'll briefly tell you why , but you really should check out my hub about becoming so addicted to OxyContin in only two to three months that I will be on methadone for the rest of my life. Believe me I tried, unsuccessfully, for years to quit on my own and I always went back to using. Well, when my doctor first prescribed OxyContin to me I spent hours and hours researching it, because I honestly didn't know anything about it. What I came across in my research chilled me to the bone, and to be honest--it was the kind of discovery that could have gotten me killed. Scary stuff right? Well, if Purdue Pharmaceuticals uses unethical practices, surely others do. What do you think about that notion? I will invite anyone with information which helps further my article's progress to (at minimumhelp me on my blog, Wait Til You Get a Load of This! (lulubelle7537.wordpress.com) or possibly to be a guest editor on my blog
I am an Indian. I believe one hundred percent that Pharma companies are engaged in unfair practices to increase business . They manage government authorities, doctors, hired media.
In my city Pune some doctors have tie-up with companies to sell their product from doctor's own dispensary located in their own hospital !!
Patient has to buy from that store and not made available in other parts of city.
They are minting money .Poor patients have no choice but to buy from them
Government-manufacturers nexus dictates market and people are poor sufferers.
