A recent report from Australia has cast doubt on the benefits of certain off the shelf pain relief products describing the claims for these drugs as misleading which throws open a whole new area of debate – where should the invisible line be drawn in marketing and what is the real price of drugs.
The news item which was reported by the BBC as “The strange psychology of pain relief medicines” took a leading brand and simply stated that the claims for its benefits were no better than that which could be obtained by taking cheaper unbranded drugs – hardly earth shattering news for anyone who has visited their local pharmacy looking for a cure or relief from a cold etc – it is our experience here at GFD HQ that the sales staff of such shops will always advise of a cheaper unbranded alternative that will work just as well. We humans are very poor at reading labels particularly with pharmaceuticals (probably because we think it is to complex) but as most products have a list of their contents printed on the label it is not really that difficult to compare and contrast after all there are only so many ways paracetamol, ibuprofen or aspirin can be packaged. The packaging is the difference because it is never cheap but if you expensive drug looks good and it works for you where is the problem it’s all a matter of choice – your choice.
The logic of some reports such as this is quite alarming as it can be extended into all walks of life –
Take Cars – these two both do the same thing – transport you- both work well and are functional so you have the money to buy and happily run either –
Rolls Royce do not advertise that their car is better than a Fiat 500 we the public just know – in this case appearance does count – but if you have the money and desire to own a Roller – it’s your choice.
Even our own doors enter into this same argument – they work and function as a door keeping out the elements and the home occupants secure – but so does a few planks of wood nailed together hung on hinges and with some rudimentary locking mechanism -so what can be done to make a door different from all the other doors on the market – same as the Rolls Royce – enhance the specification and improve the packaging i.e the styles and colours available.
