Is It Really Necessary to Get A Doctor's Note for Product Information?

I can't believe I had to get a note from my son's pediatrician in order to obtain more detailed information about the inactive ingredients in OFF Mosquito Repellant.  Does anyone else think that's a little silly?  I was almost embarrassed to ask the doctor for it.  We all had a good chuckle over it. When I researched barbecue sauce ingredients a few months ago, I remember one of the barbecue sauce manufacturers also would not provide detailed information without a doctor's note.  Proprietary information, they said.  I can understand that.  But then the suspicious cynic in me wonders if maybe there's something about the product they really don't want to broadcast so they make persistent consumers like me jump through hoops in order to get the "goods".  I wonder how many people actually bother to get the doctor's note.  What do you think about all this?
