Matt and I like to laugh about how it feels like they’re running out of available names for pharmaceuticals because they’ve just started sounding more and more awkward and ridiculous to pronounce.Read more: prevnar, prevnar everywhere
We noticed at some point this year while watching the show Parenthood that we were pretty much only getting ads for drugs. It seems weird since we happen to be a household that rarely visits a pharmacy counter, so prescription drugs aren’t a slam-dunk thing to advertise to us…and here we thought the internet companies were doing a good job stalking us. But even a toddler could give us a once-over and see that they should be advertising gadgets, food, and pretty much anything Star Wars or vampires to us.
Then it occurred to me that this might be happening because I’m getting to be “of a certain age.” And maybe these are just the ads you get when you’re rounding this bend in the road of life. 🤷🏻♀️
We started keeping track of the drugs we were seeing ads for just for fun, and this is the list we came up with over the next few weeks. 27 pharmaceuticals total! Someone please tell me what I win for doing this.
