Pharma prompt 2

After looking over the FDA’s website, I thought the tab “Questions to Ask Yourself” was the most consumer friendly. This section has the consumer look at themselves and what their own needs are, including why they think they may have a certain condition. (Which I noted in my first post). This has the consumer ask questions rather than blindly follow an ad. This also gets them thinking about the most important factor: themselves as the consumer. However, consumers could still be at risk due to the fact that most will likely not check the FDA website. The public is not as well informed as those in the public health field or classroom. If each commercial had a warning and informative ending asking the consumer to evaluate their needs before seeing a doctor, perhaps less would simply go get a drug prescribed.
