TV Drug Ads
TV drug ads is a hot button issue for many. In the past few TV ads have been lecturing about pharma and the for profit system and there is usually at least 1 audience member complaining about it. All these given advertisements are objectionable, to remove which the viewers have been complaining from time to time.
Also others believe that in some advertisements such as drug advertisements increase the cost of medicine and also there is a misconception that advertising is spent more than development. Some industries will spend about 7 billion- Dollar was spent only and only for advertising whereas in the same year the collective expenditure on r&d was about 240 billion dollars
So this is the reason why many people are hating TV drug commercials and many different reasons are also given based on a survey done by STAT people not only complain about these commercials but also complain about the commercials of the same drug. also complaining about primacy
But the point to be understood is that this is not all that surprising as companies believe that increasing the frequency of advertising increases the possibilities and their messages are also fulfilled and this belief is not only in pharma but also Too in all industries.
People believe that they buy the medicine after seeing all the ads, but people hate that medicine by telling about the side effects caused by the drug, which are said to not give adverse results, this is not an unusual thing. Because of which people start hating such ads .
Some officials of the American Medical Association recently wrote a paper giving up on ads and boosting their influence in the movement because an American Medical Association study found that direct advertising to consumers was the bulk of promotional spending. Viewed to identify drug characteristics associated with the part.
The authors draw a conclusion that in 2022 more money was spent on pressure ads with less added benefit. People should be questioned as to what is the best treatment for them. It is for this triangle that some people call AIDS Seeing that they take medicine and promote the same and because of science some medicines are sold expensive.
Interestingly, most of the JAMA study reports ignored editorials stating that the drug is important to the general health of the population, but those who cite data Life expectancy means birth rate has increased by 25 to 35% between 1990 and 2015
It is a matter of thinking that in general some medicines which are mainly of less rupees but due to the expenditure of more money in its advertisement, the buyers have to increase their pocket money because the company also takes the money of the advertisement from the users, due to which Swasti medicine is also available to the consumers for a few more rupees and some wrong information shown in the ad confuses the users, due to which the matter of making a lot of rules on ADS is telling.
Many such cases have also come to the fore in which some consumers consume medicines just by seeing advertisements without the permission of any doctor, due to which they also have to bear heavy losses because without any consultation from any doctor or specialist. Even using the drug proves to be harmful to health, so users should be careful and avoid consuming drugs just by looking at the ads because some ads do not give complete details of the drugs.
If this type of advertising increases sales by perhaps $600 billion across industries, then only $15 billion is invested in new drug discovery. In fact, these ads help support r&d and educate patients. Doctors also help promote people to people interaction and reduce absenteeism but support R&D investors and this without harming the country
