I’m of the opinion that prescription drugs should not be advertised on TV. I make a point of ignoring the images of happy people smiling and laughing after their maladies have been cured by the product. We are told to “ask our doctor about…”. What they mean is “tell your doctor that you need ….”. I make it a point to listen to the side effects. For the longest time the funniest was the erection lasting 3-4 hours. I think after an hour I would start to get worried. I can imagine that conversation (and so can you).
This morning while watching the happy cartoon “restless legs” cured by Mirapex I was surprised to hear about compulsive gambling and other pleasure seeking behaviours. I keyed on the word “sexual”. Hopefully this ad will be placed in close proximity to one for casino gambling. Ask your doctor about your next Vegas vacation.
