Ask Your Doctor About

I’d love to be able to skip commercials when I watch TV but we only have an antenna so there’s no way to record and zoom past the darned things. In the middle of a sleepless night I realized there had been 4 ads for various prescription drugs in just over an hour. Two things struck me about these commercials. They all have hideous side effects and every one of them tells us to “Ask your doctor about…”

  1. We always enjoy the commercials that lightly advertise the joys of these treatments for issues like dull hair, thin nails, or general malaise but also include potential side effects such as explosive kidneys, arsenic breath, firey colons, and death. The trade off seems slightly off balance. How are these advertisements still happening with such regularity? And if regularity is a problem you yourself face, I have just the prescription for you but be sure to check with your doctor! 😉

      1. Hahaha! I always tell my husband that something must be wrong with my prostate because the internet says that I have all the systems. It’s just strange given that there’s no way I can have one. 😉

  2. Yes, yes, and whatever side effect you “might” get, if you go to the doctor, it’s never a “side effect” it’s another illness, and there’s another pill for that, with MORE side effects. I know so many people that start with say, high blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, they are given a pill. A few months later they are having issues. I look up their medicine and it’s a side effect. “But no Margaret, it isn’t. The doctor says it’s xyz and gave me something to take for it.” Did they even try to switch medicines to see, noooooo. And before you know it, they are taking a medicine cabinet of meds for, what I would bet, are side effects.
