Wink Rls

I'm talking about Restless Leg Syndrome and those other strange ailments that I never in my life have heard of, before the bombarding of ads for prescription medicines.
I have to wonder if they've made these things up just to sell the pills, LOL!
I think some people imagine they have these things when they keep hearing the symptons over and over, go to their doc and tell him they have this or that, and a prescription gets written

I think I had RLS when I was young although it was never diagnosed. My leg never stopped moving for long. As a kid the layman's diagnosis was "he's got ants in his pants" I was always real skinny when I was young. As I aged the involuntary leg movements went away...... but instead of staying skinny, I'm errr, uhh, well... not

I do believe there are too many Rx's wrote in this country.Too many people have the mindset that instead of taking better care of ourselves or living with a minor inconvience - GET A PILL. IMO if less $s were spent on advertising, we would take less medication and surely what we do take wouldn't cost as much.

That is the idea, yes
That's what is written on the wall of the drugco marketing dept.
