Are we REALLY that busy??
In the Boniva commercial, Forest Gump's mom is all proud that she only takes one pill her month while her girlfriend has to take her pill weekly. I mean...again, I've got a pretty busy schedule, I'm sure I can find the 1 minute it would require to take a pill! Ok...now because I'm ME, I did research Boniva a bit and on the website it says that you have to allot one hour to not having ANYTHING else food- or beverage-wise. Also, it says that you MUST drink plain water with it...not anything else (and it actually LISTS what you can't drink with it!!) But again, is this THAT much of a sacrifice once a week...so much so that one would RELISH the chance to do it once monthly instead of weekly!!
And another thing that bothers me is when those commercials for medicines that tell you all the side effects and they sound WORSE than what you already have and are trying to treat!! My FAVORITE one is the commercial that is for frequent urination but one of the side effects is diarrhea!! Now, my thinking is...if you are going to the bathroom ALL THE TIME...which would you rather do??? Sheesh!!
I was going to elaborate on how I felt about the herpes (5 times a day versus one time a day) commercial, but I think my comments will be too ignorant, so I'll resist!
What commercials do you hate?
