We’re putting together a “top 10” list of disturbing side effects mentioned in drug ads and we wanted to make sure we didn’t miss any.
What are we looking for?
For example, in this AmbienCR commercial, the announcer says:
“Sleepwalking and eating or driving while not fully awake with amnesia for the event have been reported.”
Driving while not awake? With amnesia? Neat!
If you’ve noticed a disturbing side-effect in a tv drug ad, watch the ad again and write down exactly what the announcer says and the name of the drug, and email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Put “Disturbing Side Effect” in the subject of your email. If you can find a clip of the advertisement on the internet, please include a link. If you have a commenter account, feel free to leave your suggestion in the comments.
We’ll pick the top 10 and feature them in a Consumerist post. Thanks!
