    How about just banning pill spam entirely?.. It's nothing but a nuisance, and you should be looking to your doctor for medical advise, not http://*/ads/*

    Completely agree with you, Aidanjt! I find drug adverts on TV here in the US really perplexing... I mean, surely if you have severe bladder dysfunction, you should go and ask a trained professional about it rather than buying something you saw advertised between a reality show and an ad for Taco Bell...

    Thankfully we don't have them here. They are even cutting back on the health benefits "pro-boitic" yoghurt and drinks since the EU medical council found no benefit to them at all. The same products that were being advertised as "aiding digestive discomfort" are now simply a quick low calorie lunch snack
