The drug industry has long spent billions of dollars annually - far more than it spends on research - trying to persuade doctors to prescribe its pills.

Take those billions spent trying to persuade doctors; add those billions to all monies spent on TV, magazine, and newspaper advertising trying to persuade the consumer to request said drug, and does anyone have to ask why drugs are so expensive?
