So exhausted seeing every other commercial about pharmaceuticals. Will it ever end?
In the good old days there were NO pharmaceutical commercials. Now almost every other one. No wonder our prescriptions are so expensive.
Is there anyway we can end this ?

I am so with you on this. I don't understand the marketing model. I get it when I see a commercial for a Buick...hey, consumer, you drive a car, buy this Buick. Makes sense. But prescription meds? What am I supposed to do? Call my doc and say, "hey, doc, I need some gaziltrex, prescribe it, please." I don't get it. Doc is gonna prescribe whatever drug she gets the biggest kickback from.

You must be watching shows geared towards older people. I'm 31 and one of the shows I still watch is "Little House on the Prairie" on Hallmark Channel and INSP. Good grief, it's pill commercials, life insurance, and of course cancer commercials all the time on those channels.

I was in the US about 15 years ago and they were constantly airing a commercial for a pill which I think was for acid reflux. Can't remember the name of it but no need really because it was marketed with the phrase, 'go ask your Dr. for the Purple Pill'

I remember thinking WTF!

Cut the cord already, you are paying to be spoon fed this advertising garbage. Is it really worth it? A one hour show has twenty minutes of ads in it.

One commercial is about taking a new drug and the next commercial is about suing the company that sold a bad drug a few years ago.

It is interesting. All of these very long commercials where they spend about a full minute disclosing risks and showing a cute image or story.

Who in the fuck see's that shit and asks the doctor for it?

What doctor let's the patient determine the perscription based on a tv commercial?

I think its hilarious people pay money for television programming and have to watch equal time of advertising and your show.

You're buying advertising and then bitch about it.

Lmfao.

I would rather use anything than cable or satellite. For fuck sakes you have the internet.
