It may cause....

“Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go right now.” I’m sure you are familiar with that catchy little tune. It's the jingle for Detrol the medication used to help an estimated 17 million people who are afflicted with an overactive bladder. This is just one of the MANY medications you can see advertised on TV, it seems that there is something for everything these days.

So take these helpful little goodies but beware it may cause dizziness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle pain, hair loss, bleeding gums, sleeplessness, fatigue, blurred vision, tooth decay, bleeding ears, fingernail erosion. But remember you won’t pee your pants.

I’m not sure which would be the lesser of the two evils. Having to wear adult diapers or put up with all of the above mentioned.

Every one of the drugs that are supposed to help you in one way causes you nothing but aggravation in so many others. Do you mean to tell me that with all the research that goes on every single day they cannot come up with a remedy for a condition that doesn’t cause so many other complications? I have a hard time believing that. This medication happens to be approved by the FDA but I’m not sure how many of the others are.

After several months on the market you will be sitting on your couch watching TV and a commercials comes on. Only this time it is to inform you that the drug you have been taking to help with your overactive bladder condition is off the market. See NOW they have found it causes cancer or some other horrific illness. Then they tell you to contact your attorney because you are going to sue the pharmaceutical company that produces the drug. It’s all a big racket! The drug makers get rich, the insurance companies and attorney’s get more then their share too. What stinks is that it is all at the consumer/publics expense.

I say take two aspirin and call me in the morning!
