Okay, I think it’s great that the warnings are included on the TV ads for drugs. But they can certainly be both alarming and amusing.
First one I noticed was Propecia, in which the stern whisper warns: “Pregnant women should not handle broken tablets…”
Sounds like pretty toxic stuff, doesn’t it?
There are others in which the list of side effects is so long that I forget what the desired effect is.
Last night I saw one for a “fat blocker” that was recommended only for the severely overweight. Among the side effects were “oily stool, diarrhea, sudden and uncontrollable bowel movements…”
I’m picturing these poor souls in public. What a nightmarish concept, and just in time for Halloween! Imagine the movie:
Night of the Morbidly Obese with Explosive Oily Diarrhea
