What's the deal with pharmaceutical ads...

that don't tell you anything about what the drug is or does but simply states the trademark prescription brand name?

It's a very recent marketing fad. Do these companies really think rando viewers will run (not walk) to their doctors demanding for these meds even if they have zero ideas what they do and treat?

I think they are hoping people will demand it because of all the wonderful potential side effects.

I guess it's a loophole. Since they don't tell about what it does, they don't have to mention anything about the side effects.

Like I said, all the ad copy consists is basically the brand name.

@bobsal u1553115,
Not sure your point. The couple of examples (name brands withheld to not give them SEO power) don't list the side effects or direct the viewer to a location (magazine ad or website) where you could read more about the side effects.

As an aside, I did make a side effects include word game.

Perhaps its because they made such a huge profit during the Corona pandemic, if they don't make the same profit this year it will be considered a loss.

Please don't make me dig those up. They also include ways to pay to discount the cost of these pharmaceuticals, too.

Here's compilation:

I watch drug commercials just to check out the side effects. Some are gruesome.

All our adverts are for life insurance, funeral plans and on line gambling.

That would be a pleasant change. We use "free speech" to cover a wide range of ****.
