Not sure if this the right place to post this but i have become disgusted by pharmecutical companies lately. I shadowed a doc during winter break everyday for a month. every single day we had a catered lunch from pharm. reps, good food not cheap stuff. anyone feel this such a huge waste of money not to mention paying the reps salaries from 45-90k giving them cars etc. Why would they not just send out short and sweet pamphlets about the drugs with the samples and give docs a means by internet to request more samples etc. If the drug is good then it will be bought/perscribed, i hope any doctor does not make up their mind to prescribe a drug based upon anything a rep. with no medical training or generaly no scientific background outside of the 4 weeks of training about the drugs that can eaisly be read in 2 minutes by a phyisician. If they got rid of say 90% of drug reps the pharm companies would save money and maybe our drug prices would not be so unreasonable.
