It’s a common practice for pharmaceutical companies to spend more on marketing than on research itself. Therefore, some people believe such ads should be banned because of concerns that they can both encourage patients to buy costlier drugs that might also be inappropriate for them, and because marketing costs boost the price of drugs. On the other side, ads make patients better informed about treatment options. Whatever your opinion is, it is always fascinating to see which products top pharma advertisers chose to push. And it can be fun to watch their creative ads.
