They just take a quick look at them. Many pharmaceutical information is
in the form of nice huge full-color "adds", describing the relevant
information in small print on the backside. Today, I saw one with a
healthy plant treated with xxx and a rotten plant infected with
chlamydia <sp>. And a man climbing a mountain with the text "you want
your hart patients to be able to go save on holiday, don't you ?". 
Besides, what do physicians know about neurotransmitters :-?
