Like you I wade through ad after ad after ad spouting the virtues of some new "purple Pill that I should "ask my Doctor if it's right for me" everytime I turn on my TV.
@2.4 Billion this year on television advertising alone. Forget Newspapers, magazines or radio ...
So when I started seeing a rash of BAD NEWS:
Prescription for an obsession?
Impulsive sex, compulsive gambling linked to Parkinson's drugs
Midnight munchies linked to sleeping pills
Ambien users report short-term memory loss, uncontrollable binge eating http://www.msnbc.msn.com/...
Driving under the influence -- of sleeping pills
This is NOT the Kind Of PRESS these Guys want:
Ambien among top 10 drugs found in impaired drivers
When Wayne Kanuch received a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease in 1993, the last thing he imagined was that the drug prescribed to treat his illness would turn him into a compulsive gambler and put his libido into overdrive.
CHICAGO - Strange behavior by insomniacs taking prescription drugs, ranging from binge eating to having sex while asleep, have raised safety questions about anti-insomnia medications such as Sanofi-Aventis' Ambien.
Researchers in Minnesota are studying cases where insomniacs taking Ambien got up in the middle of the night, binged uncontrollably, then remembered nothing of their actions.
There's a growing hazard on the roadway, the kind of motorist who smashes into parked cars, plows over sidewalks and drives in the wrong direction, all while oblivious to the destruction left behind. These drivers aren't drunk or stoned -- they're under the influence of Ambien, the nation's most popular prescription sleeping pill.
I thought what's up here ... ?
