Regarding ‘Relief as drug ‘advertising’ plan ditched‘:
As a student at a university in the United States, I think it would be in Europe’s best interest to allow prescription drugs to be advertised. The US is one of two countries that allows this and it has proven to be very beneficial.
All of the experts whose opinions were stated in the article had very valid points when they said that patients should have the right to see medicines that could potentially help them.
Having said that, restrictions should be put in place because some companies leave out side-effects that their medicines could cause.
