The ads sell the drugs that's for sure. We have friends that brag "I'm taking that new medicine you see advertised. My doctor sure fought the insurance company to pay for it". Some times the warnings are carefully worded to make the side effects sounds like a benefit. Think of the one that warns if the "benefit" lasts longer than 4 hours, seek medical attention.
I agree with everyone, stop the ads. The cost of those commercials is tacked onto the price of the drug.
