Here are a few of my favorite prescription drugs heavily advertised on television. Their names are poetry of a sort, expertly crafted and wrought over by teams of specialists and marketers. (For further reading see Colson Whitehead's excellent Apex Hides the Hurt). I have added a short, clarifying description of each one along with actual side effects from the ads:
Ozempic (Semaglutide) – Destroys the following: Picnics, Olympics, Aztecs, and Pixels. Grabbed the “O-O-O It’s Magic” theme song before those bastards from Otezla could get their filthy paws on it. May cause disturbing dreams (usually involving the “O-O-O It’s Magic” theme song.
Keytruda (Pembrolizumab) vs Latuda vs Truvada vs Trulicity. Tailor made for these uncertain times where the truth is found to be lies, and all the joy within you dies. Warning: Truth is a controlled substance and should only be prescribed by a medical professional, newspaper editor or Internet expert.
Dupixent (Dupilumab) I’m glad they renamed this cause “Dupilumab” made no sense at all. Either way it doubles your pupil input so you can see more? May also double your pupil output so you can see less. May cause “unusual” bleeding.
