Attorney PSA

As a general rule, it is not wise to stop your medication because you saw an add for an lawsuit clearing house on TV. I know its hard to believe but it probably was the plavix that was keeping your coronary arteries from clogging despite it being on 1-800-BAD-DRUG. I hope that you recover from your massive MI and have a chance to watch some of the other lawsuit seeking commercials.

I'm sorry to vent but it is getting ridiculous. We really did have a patient today who stopped their plavix because they thought it was banned after seeing a commercial on TV.

Sounds like the patient should sue the lawyer who made the advertisement.

I guess they keep missing the part where it tells them to "talk to their doctor."

Pretty scary that they would trust an ad on television over the advice of their physicians.

Those commercials can be scary.

Crazy that they didn't run it by their physician tho. maybe they weren't the brightest bulb?
