This shit has gone too far. It was cute when they started innocuously slipping in things like “anal leakage” and “erections lasting longer than several hours” in the warnings, but this shit is beyond the pale.

Motherfuck the FDA for allowing drugs to go to market when they do more harm than good. Fuck the culture of governmental cronyism that allows it to happen. Fuck these companies for rushing drugs to the market before they’re adequately tested, and fuck the FDA for allowing these companies to turn the public into their guinea pigs, resulting in fatal heart attacks, suicidal mania, birth defects…I could go on all day. Motherfuck the corporate american healthcare system that allows this to happen, as I watched over 20 drug company representatives go in and out of the doctor’s office with impunity while I waited for an appointment. Motherfuck the doctors who force handfuls of free samples of these latest fad drugs on their patients in lieu of legitimate treatment and prevention.
