Drug commercials…why are these on TV again?

I’m watching American Pickers right now on the History Channel. There have been a ton of prescription drug commercials during this show. I really don’t understand the point of these. “Ask your doctor if MedicineWithTooManySideEffects is right for you.”. Shouldn’t these things come up at the doctor’s office anyhow? I can’t just go out and buy them and usually the list of side-effects (flatulence, dementia, death) freak me out.

Just askin…
