Pretty much all the prescription-drug commercials on TV follow this same uninteresting pattern:
Sufferers of Sweaty Elbow Syndrome can relax. Clinical trials have shown that Placebon causes up to a 7.5% drop in elbow sweat production in almost half of users. If you or someone you love are living with SES, ask your health care provider about Placebon.
In rare cases, patients reported depression and suicidal thoughts. Stop taking Placebon and see your health care provider if these occur. Side effects are rare, and include herniated discs, coronary artery blockages, and sudden incontinence. Patients who use alcohol or have visited regions with ebola outbreaks should not take Placebon. Do not take Placebon if you are allergic to Placebon.
Emphasis in the original. One question, of course, remains unanswered:
How in the Ninety-Nine Names of Spongebob am I supposed to know if I’m allergic to a drug I’ve never taken?
This is so they can say “We warned you” when the stuff makes you deathly ill. CYA all the way.
