My family and I don't llke seeing drug ads. I don't believe there is a need for any drug ads on TV or cable. If someone has a problem, they can go see their family doctor or minister for help. These drug ads aren't just annoying, they are committing fraud on the unsuspecting public with chemicals that don't handle anything but only "treat" the symptoms of the problem. If you look at current drugs ads, the disclosure information on the harmful effects is as long as the ad itself. The drug companies have gone so far now as to say that the drug can cause death if taken. Look at how many drugs these days cause liver problems. In another decade there is going to be a huge rise in liver failures due to the use of all these drugs. This drug fraud needs to be investigated immediately. These drugs ads are getting so ridiculous that there are drugs for high blood pressure that have side effects of heart attack. That is insane!
