So, Now Drug Reps Don’t Work?

Alerted by Kevin, MD (who runs the best clipping service for medbloggers), I read this little article: Drug Sales Visits Affect Doctors Little- U.S. Study

Now I’m even more confused. I thought I was just a brainless dolt / whore, ready to prescribe the latest and greatest super-expensive drug if I got a pen or a lunch out of it (though I am a bad doc, I don’t do that).

I’m heartened that others see drug reps as the biased sources of misinformation they are! Hooray!

Perhaps I don’t need to start my own chapter of No Free, a physician organization dedicated to weaning docs off the drug-rep crack. Well, I’ll keep it in mind.
