One thing - at the very least the earlier print ads were seen by psychiatrists who actually spent a good amount of time with their patients, not like the 10 minutes if we are lucky...its easier for them to scribble out Rx for something if the patient asks for it...or incresingly, easier still, hand the patient a sample of the newer, patent med, because all the major pharms have salespeople supply them...
