Drug company freebies costing you THOUSANDS!
Before she made her first buck poisoning you and your kids with her disgusting, sugar-laden treats, Debbi Fields of Mrs. Fields Cookies had to do something that may surprise you.
She had to go broke. She had to spend hours on every street corner and shopping mall hallway that would have her giving away free samples. Because if there's one thing Mrs. Fields understood about Americans, it's that we like to get something for nothing.
Well, it turns out doctors aren't any different. And those billions in free pill samples being slipped into their lab coats by shady drug company shills may not cost your doc a cent -- but they're costing you THOUSANDS!
A new Stanford study of American dermatologists found that all it takes is one visit... just one packet of free samples... to more than DOUBLE your medical bill.
Dermatologists who accepted "free" drug company samples wrote their typical patients prescriptions for $465 in drugs. Compare that to a $200 bill from dermatologists who refused to accept the Big Pharma freebies.
Now after your dermatologist revives you with smelling salts, he'll probably feed you some lousy line about how a couple hundred dollars is a small price to pay when you're getting access to the latest and greatest drugs medical science has to offer.
Well, you can put that tired old bull straight out to pasture. Because more often than not, all you're getting is some reformulated or "controlled release" version of a generic you could buy for pennies on the dollar. That's right -- you're getting the EXACT SAME DRUG with a new, fancy label.
Drug companies hand out $16 billion in free samples every year -- and like buying a blue chip stock, it almost always pays off. In fact, the number of dermatologists writing pricey prescriptions after getting free samples increased 50% during the 10 years measured.
Friend, your best weapons are your brain, your own two eyes, and the old, reliable "sniff test." So the next time some professional pimple popper tries to load you up with hundreds of dollars of prescriptions for a rash or stubborn back acne, put that nose of yours to work.
More often than not, you'll find something that stinks.
