Survey Says: Pharma Industry Influence on Everyone's mind
A Consumer Reports survey of 1,154 adults on prescription medications showed that 90% of them are concerned about physician's prescribing habits. 69% of those surveyed believed completely or somewhat that drug makers have too much influence in physician's prescribing habits.
The two categories that concerned those surveyed the most were when doctors wrote more prescriptions for one drug company's drug than another and when doctors were hired by drug companies to speak for them at conferences.
