This ad really cuts to the horrible chase. Literally a few seconds of what CLL is, then "it may not work w/ everyone"... the rest of the sh*t medication ad - as usual - a long list of it's horrible side effects.

It never mentions any benefits of this pill.
What's the point of this ad except wasting our time? Even if I had leukemia, I'd question this crap commercial.

These Pharma ads blow my mind 

Its such brainwashing the way they say Death and serious Bleeding etc. with that

"Serious bleeding" usually does cause the victim to become worm food. Dead

Except - and here's the thing that bugs me about all of these ads - in most if not all circumstances, YOUR DOCTOR(S) will decide what medications to prescribe. I can't for a minute believe that any doctor would decide to write a prescription for Imbruvica - or any other drug for that matter - simply because a patient saw a commercial. It just doesn't make any sense.

Yeah. I once asked my cardiologist if I should be on a prescription blood thinner.

His reply:
"Why? Would you like to be?"

His way of saying no without actually saying no.
