It seems like every week, TV pushed a new disease has some miraculous drug to relieve the itch/pain/involuntary flatulence/halitosis/etc. Bring back the Hamm’s Beer Bears. From the land of sky blue waters..........

I was rather surprised to hear of a commercial about Tardive Dyskinesia which is typically caused by long term usage of certain antipsychotic drugs. It is debilitating and there is no cure. IMHO advertising prescription drugs to the public is just wrong.

Maybe with the President's executive orders yesterday the reduced prescription drug pricing and therefore profits will impact the glut of asinine drug commercials.

or maybe there is an opprotunity.

Maybe there needs to be one 24 hour channel that has only diseases on it
head to toe infants to the elderly

Diseases and then places that need money to treat the diseases. day and night
and then
another channel

that pushes all the drugs,treatments and cures.

there should be someone making money here





Safety, Situational Awareness and proficiency.

I like that idea. You could also add all the ambulance chasing lawyers. In between you could have that Flex Seal guy and Biden campaign commercials.

Trump has not signed anything yet. He is giving them until August 24th to come up with an alternate idea. Sadly it will not end the commercials because they increase drug company profits.

Gotcha. Thought he signed 3 of 4...

Regardless I'm with mcrimm... bring back humorous commercials for "normal" commodities and kill off all these drug pitches.

As an added benefit, you could threaten miscreant teenage kids with it!

For mcrimm. A staple of my youth watching the Cubs play. My understanding is that the bear was permanently retired because it might induce kids to drink. Really??

Nah, I think the 18 year old drinking age in Wisconsin, where I grew up, had a lot to do in inducing me to drink. That, plus the easy to create fake identity cards might have played a role.

When I was 18 we used to go fishing and beer drinking on Lake Petenwell at Gary's Hideway. It was a lot of fun since Illinois had a 21 year old drinking age.

I've probably said it here before but when you see one of those commercials go to GoodRx and price that new drug just for shits and giggles. Typically you will be amazed.

A few months back, I was prescribed Xarelto, an anti-coagulant. Never being on any prescription drugs until recently, I never signed up for Part D Medicare. Three weeks worth of Xarelto was $685 with GoodRx. I can't afford it because I'm sending $19 a month to ten or twelve different charities, including those Jewish holocaust survivors, shivering through Russian winters. Let's see, the war ended 75 years ago, shouldn't those folks be dead by now?
