Let's Hear it for Drug Companies (seriously)

Incidentally, this psoriasis medicine is working like gangbusters! Within a week, areas that were cracked, swollen, and bleeding for months became more like smooth birth marks. And now those are starting to fade down to little red dots. So, if this continues, the medicine will have worked as well as the doctor promised, but twice as quickly.

Anyway, I hear people complain about something called ''Big Pharma'' quite a lot, and I would agree that the drug companies run a few too many ads in the US (interestingly enough, you rarely see them here in Canada), and maybe charge a bit too much. However, I think it's worth noting that they also undertake some pretty astonishing research, and come up with some very good medicines like Dovonex.
