Never seen anyone lie...

Well consider the Synthroid saga. The company sponsered research that thier branded drug was better than the generics. And they threw in a "hush" clause to the researchers who were forced to remain silent. Many of the studies came back showing no advantage to Synthroid, but the company hushed those up and presented only the studies showing an advantage to their product. Consequently, the company misled physicians into believing the generics were not bioequivalent, and thus to keep prwscribing the brand-only drug. This resulted in a major lawsuit. It is clearly an example of market driven deception.

Don't get me wrong -- I believe in psychopharmacology. Indeed the anti medical people are also open to deception -- intentional and unintentional. Take for example what Peter Breggin does -- tout only what supports his position and dismisses anything else.

I think the info from the survey is real, but I have some concern about the objectivity of the sample -- it was conducted via their website. Anyone else see any problems here?
