Tell it like It isn’t…direct to consumer drug ads

Most of us have been around the block long enough to know about side effects. And the TV ads, how they go on and on, they list so many side effects so fast that you can hardly understand them!

 

Wouldn’t it be hysterical if they listed all the side effects that a medicine Doesn’t have?

 

“Could you go a little slower please…oh did you say that there is no cardiac risk for elderly patients with dementia, no high blood sugar?” “Really?” What else? We’d be on the edge of our seats, avidly listening. As it is, they’ve covered their butts and we’ve tuned out.

 

Meds do offer great quality of life in some cases. Not all. I keep reading blogs from people going through really tough patches!

I’ve been good since July. Don’t worry about it too much anymore.
