The Hellhole

I've been meaning to blog about this ever since the adventure of Alan and His Assploding Appendix™ but haven't got round to it...

Prescription drugs come with all sorts of warnings including those of the possibility of horrible side effects, most of them worse than the initial thing being treated. I laugh at those commercials often - like, this drug will cure my asthma but MAY cause vomiting, diarrhea, glaucoma, liver failure, strokes, heart failure and brain ossification. Well, one among the several antibiotics Alan had to take included the warning, along with the usual such as not to drive or operate heavy machinery, the directive "do not expose patient to direct sunlight".

You realize, of course, what this means.

The pharmaceutical giants have developed a drug that needs to warn against vomiting, diarrhea, glaucoma, liver failure and VAMPIRISM.
