"Phone Your Doctor Right Away"
The words “phone your doctor
now echoes in your head
all night and day
There’s a cure for every ailment
To help you “do it again”,
Like breath, make love
Or just grip an ink pen.
There’s “Orencia” for Rheumatoid
And the words “Oh Yes I can”
And “Singular” for your allergies
“To breathe right once again”.
If you’re void of an erection
“C’alis” can sure help.
Should it remain at full attention
Then be proud of yourself!
When your allergies worsen
Just ask your doctor for “O’Maris”
But has your Rheumatoid returned?
Then plead for “Embreal”
Or just harass him!
Because now you feel down,
So the word “Cymbalta” you’ll yell.
You know “depression can hurt,
Cymabalta can help”
As the pills keep multiplying
You may lose bladder control
So ask your doctor for “Vesicare”
(Quotes that lady on the door.)
But as you ran to the restroom
Your bronchial tubes had felt labored
So ask your doctor for”Spiriva”
Those deep breaths you can savor!
The healing power of Garasil
Lyrica and Actonel you’ve been sold,
Along with Nexium, and Advair
You need them ALL you’ve been told
But one more thing you should read
About those “possible” side effects,
Like multi-seizures, liver damage,
Heart failure or even death.
Now “Ask your doctor” once again
Or “phone your doctor right away
With all those drugs
You’re now delirious
And in that condition you’ll stay!
My TV is viewed only 3 to 4 hours in the evening but the prescription drug ads drove me crazy! After the mute button on my remove control wore out I grabbed a note book, clutched an ink pen & began writing the drug name, the logo line, and then 'possible side effects' now I have decided to share my writing. Do you realize how the Doctors receive a 'bonus' with each prescription they issue for the 'new' medication? Why ban cigarette ads from TV and now allow drug ads, both are addicting and dangerous to your health! Copy this, print it and post it on your refrigerator & share with others, please keep passing this along. The price of these advertised medications are draining our pockets and should not be allowed on TV!
