    If these drugs are already FDA approved, why would medical doctors agree to be part of these marketing devices? Were they financially compensated?

    I believe it said they were paid for each patient they recruited into the "study".

    Gosh ! and I was on Neurontin (full epilesy dose) for quite a while. I see the devious tactics involved here but it certainly got me through the worst days and allowed sleep at last.

    David Brooks, the editor for the New York Times is often on Politicial shows. He seems to be republican in the past and always seems very knowledgable about the republican viewpoints when on TV.

    However, things have changed of late with David Brooks. He has allowed some pretty schathing artciles in the New York Times and even is quoted for his disappointment of the republicans.

    I'm thinking he is realizing the consequences of the media on the public.
