Concern: "directly advertising prescription drugs to consumers is likely to cause some patients to pursue certain medications that may be inappropriate for their individual health situation".

D) Physicians are not susceptible to pressure from patients in determining appropriate courses of treatment.

The concern is not that patients will be prescribed inappropriate medication, but that the patient will pursue inappropriate medication. The ability for Physicians to prevent patients from being prescribed or acquiring inappropriate medications does not prevent the concern that patients will "pursue certain medications that may be inappropriate". How is this the answer as it doesn't DIRECTLY address the concern.


E) Fewer than 15% of patients are likely to remember and ask by name for specific drugs that they see advertised in magazines or on television.

If most patients can't remember the medication that was advertised to them, this will reduce the amount of patients that "pursue certain medications that may be inappropriate". Bingo. Why is this not the answer??
