Now this is funny, I don't care who you are :)

Commercials for prescription meds here don't include the 400 possible side effects -- just a simple note to get educated by a doctor or pharmacist. It saves a lot of time... .and idiocy.

Funny and reality. Medication is a slippery slope for many of us.

Remember when cigarettes and alcohol were advertised on TV? I do and I remember when they were banned . So why are drugs with horrific side effects allowed? Could it be ...gasp!... that the FDA isn't paying attention...or are they under the influence of Happiva? Great post- love the side effects list!

the disclaimers that get me these days are the ones that start out with: do not take happiva if you are allergic to happiva. now how the heck are you supposed to know that...

Heeheehee! Yep, this is why i don't want to be on any of those medications!

Oh this is just too funny and you hot the nail on the head. Since I am currently on antibiotics and just had a fun trip on another one, this makes so much sense in such a sad way. I often hear "death" as a side effect...what a side effect and one way you can't sue their oily ass. I also love it that the nti depressants can often cause depression. This was perfectly written

So that explains it. Members of congress have been hitting the Happiva!

The evening newscasts must all be programmed to senior citizens judging by the types of products they're hawking. But this post is f-u-n-n-y!

Good stuff, Stephen. Reminds of the Robin Williams bit when he talks about fukitol. Definitely worth a YouTube search if you haven't seen it before.

#2 Painful Urination - I guess the commercial lady holding hands with her bladder, being pulled around town by that ill-mannered pee-bag, might want to steer clear of Happiva.

They do tell you that if you feel like committing suicide you should stop taking Happiva and call a doctor...or if you do commit suicide also stop taking Happova.

Dang, how bad does your life have to be in order to be willing to accept all the side effects? Maybe there's a pill for those? ;)

I listen to those ads too and am always appalled at the lists of possible side effects that they go through so fast so as to make it impossible to understand. why on earth would anyone want to take drugs that cause all that shit. unnecessary drugs at that.

#10 would do it for me. Oily discharge? Maybe. Depends of when, I suppose.

The tone of the ad worries me a lot. It's like stuff from Stepford Wives. :-) Greetings from London.

Also very interesting that the US is the #1 place in the world where Valium is prescribed. And that was before the election circus!

Too funny! But seriously, a big reason I'm glad I'm not on any pills.
