Educate Before You Medicate
Petition Background (Preamble):
Several of these companies hand out excessive amounts of "free samples" to doctors (and junkets) in order to persuade them to prescribe their medications. Many doctors do not take the time to research these medications or the serious side effects they may have.
The elderly are more likely to have negative side effects,reactions, and are not fully informed about these medications.
We also demand the Representatives of said companies be denied access to the doctors prior to patients who have medical conditions requiring the doctors immediate attention.
