What Those Drug Ads AREN’T Telling You

Every time we turn on the television, we’re constantly bombarded with ads for pills, creams, and the like.

In fact, there are about 80 drug commercials shown every hour – 24 hours a day. All of them promising to cure you.

But what if I told you they’re lying right to your face?

When I see drug advertising, I always think back to what a wise old professor used to tell me: “If they have to convince you to buy it, then it is probably not the best product. The best products don’t need advertising.”

Currently drug companies spend $24 billion a year on advertising – and they do this because they see results.

So…should you “ask your doctor?” like the commercials say to do?

Maybe not.

That was the last barrier.

We now know drug brands as well as we know McDonalds, Coca-Cola, and Ford.
When you think about it, drug advertising is the most frequent health information you get.

While the FDA thinks advertising is okay, the American Medical Association (a group of doctors) thinks advertising should be banned.

What drug companies have learned from 20 years of advertising is a few things:

  • Advertising works: drugs that are advertised make millions of dollars.
  • If a drug is not selling well,

    • Circadian Dysrhythmia, Adult Autism, Low T, Restless Leg Syndrome, Social Anxiety Disorder – were all made-up or unknown conditions before advertising.
    • Advertisers often make general claims for their drug, such as “Don’t feel well?” “Feeling tired?” “Do you have aches and pains?”

    Why am I bringing this up?

    Because “buyer beware,” has never been more important than in the age of drug advertising.

    It is good to remember all drugs have risk, but new drugs are especially risky because they have yet to be tried on thousands of people.

    A few years ago, a new drug called Vioxx was touted as an ibuprofen replacement for arthritis. Vioxx (we later learned) increased heart attacks and stroke.

    By now you probably know that I’m not against all drugs, just the ones that mask symptoms (instead of curing them) and those that harm people more than they help.
    On top of my list of harmful drugs are those that are advertised.

    Think twice before you run and ask your doctor about the latest drug you saw advertised during the football game. You could end up avoiding a lot of trouble.
