>no, fortunately any kind of advertising (print, radio, TV,...) for prescription drugs is not allowed here in Germany.
I don't think it's allowed anywhere in Europe.
About Germany, I believe it's the largest (or at least one of the the largest) markets for prescription drugs in Europe. Pharmaceutical prices in Germany also tend to be higher than elsewhere in Europe. German pharmacies use a lot of imports from elsewhere is Europe where the same medicines are sold for lower prices.

I don't get it either, perhaps it works for Americans though :)
