I was looking at my FB account a couple days ago when a story popped up about the history of prialt. It was basically glamorizing the chemical because it was a non-opioid pain medication. The story writer was big on suggesting everyone to speak with their physician's about Prialt. The more I thought about it, the more cynical I became regarding the story. The author left out every bit of the potential side effects or the fact that it can only be delivered through a pain pump. They also did not cite any of the testing statistics which doesn't show very good long term success of the chemical.
What bothers me most about these type of "suggested ads" is that people who have not been a PM patient very long or at all would take that article as being the best new medication on the market and that everyone should be switched over to it. I am the type of person that has to "read up" on the medication a doctor wants me to take. My guess by reading so many posts on this site is that many of you do the same thing. Unfortunately, those people who blindly tout the efficacy of a medication are the ones who never have to put it in there own bodies in an attempt to feel better. It almost feels like to me that the advertisers are no better than snake oil salesmen of the 1800's.
