Oh...Oh...well..no...this is not about a Package Insert. It is a new insert that some pharmacies are adding. What is it? Well its a supplemental information Big Pharma wants you, the consumer, to know: (I capitalize where they do)
Additional Information: DO NOT SHARE THIS MEDICINE with others for whom it was not prescribed. DO NOT USE THIS MEDICINE for other health conditions. CHECK WITH YOUR PHARMACIST about how to dispose of unused medicine.
And the Best Part...Or what made me scream like the little girl to the left: This information should not be used to decide whether or not to take this medicine or any other medicine. (yes because using your own mind is not okay) Only your health care provider has the knowledge and training to decide which medicines are right for you. (but doesn't the health care provider get its information from the clinical trials that the drug companies did? Shouldn't I just as the Drug Maker if this drug is right for me?) This information does not endorse any medicine as safe, effective, or approved for treating any patient or health condition. (WTF?) (WTF did they just write?) To repeat: This information does not endorse any medicine as safe, effective, or approved for treating any patient or health condition. (Well Why In The Hell Am I taking It Then...no, its not mine...I try to stir clear of all drugs...this is the insert from a friends drug...which they probably needed, as they outweighed the risk vs. reward)
And it ends with: this is only a brief summary of general information about this medicine. It does NOT include all information about the possible uses, directions, warnings, precautions, interactions, adverse effects (See the drug pusher doesn't use the term side-effects on this page...I love when they are honest) or risks that may apply to this medicine.
