Feedback from a pharmacist

Great, yet disturbing read. As a retail pharmacist recently out of school, I find it appauling that we can not trust the literature which I just learned to understand. I truely hope I see the necessary changes you describe take place during my lifetime. I do my best to recommend time-tested generics and OTCs to customers and doctors when they are appropriate. Nothing like using an ARB as a first line antihypertensive, huh? It's all good old fashion American consumerism best displayed when a new customer tells me, "I'm allergic to all dem geriatric subscriptions...Brand only." Each day in the pharmacy is now different after reading your book. I have a new purpose of helping people use more proper medications.

Thanks. Colin
