Survey Asks Doctors: How Many Prescription Medications Do You Take?Submitted by Chris Gopackgoski on Tue, 05/14/2013 - 13:26
That's the only question I will have for them, though I would welcome any of their other comments.
Telephone calls, returned calls, follow-up written surveys, youtube videos of parking lot encounters, indecipherable tweets... How, when, and in what way could I ask doctors and psychiatrists who prescribe medication to others: How many drugs do you take?
At this point it's impossible for me to guess what the results will be. On the one hand you've got some doctors who are smarter than the average person/doctor, who get to witness their patients dropping dead from drug interactions, if not from the drugs directly. This should cause them to avoid the stuff themselves, right?
On the other hand are the doctors of more average stuff, who were more affected by the extreme brainwashing that goes on in medical schools; where aspiring doctors are taught nearly nothing about nutrition, to scoff at vitamins and supplements. Would this psychological conditioning cause them to 'double-down' on their faith in these magical pink and purple pills provided my their medical-industrial benefactors?
Now how do I do this?
