I just saw a commercial for Lunesta, which is the latest trendy sleeping pill being thrust upon us by one of the mega-giant-multinational-pharmaceutical outfits.
As they always do these days, they gave a list of the possible side effects of the drug (not very astute marketing, one might observe; I suspect a lawyer was involved in that decision). Among the possible side effects, alongside such regulars as headache, nausea, bleeding from the ears, et cetera . . . was . . . wait for it . . . drowsiness. Yeah, drowsiness. Who woulda thought that?
OH MY GOD THIS SLEEP AID MIGHT MAKE ME DROWSY, I CAN’T RISK THAT!
