    Funny prescription drug name

    Anyone seen the commercial for this new acid reflux medicine? I'm in the dining room filling out some bills, and I hear the TV -"try new Aciphex"
    ???
    I had to get up and go look to see just what the heck they were talking about. Where do they come up with this stuff? I thought the name Avodart was pretty bad for a prostate drug, ( I mean, keep the DARTS away from my prostate please), but ACIPHEX ?? HAHAHAHA

    That's a good one...I know that the Pharmaceutical firms name them after the affliction (SOMinex, GERitol or ACIphex). I get a laugh out of the disclaimers at the end of the commercials...they really mean "don't take this if you want to live". ;D

    Yeah Mike, I like some of those disclaimers too. Like the sleep aid that "may cause drowsiness"-isn't it supposed to do that?
    What drug is it that warns it's use may cause increased gambling or sexual urges? I want to get some of that and take the girlfriend to Vegas.

    Or the side effect of a erection lasting for more than 4 hours...

    Is that really a problem?

    How about the latest ads for Viagra - with Elvis' "Viva Las Vegas" in the background, except it's "Viva Viagra"!!!!!

    Viagra had a few generic names thrown around...

    Mycoxaflappin was one of my favorites.
