Friday Funny October 2, 2015 Drug Names

Rx-symbol

Happy Friday!  It is hard to believe that we have turned the calendar to October.  But the days are getting shorter and there is a bit of nip in the air this week, so I suppose there is no denying that fall is here.  

It is pretty much impossible to watch anything on television these days without seeing commercials for some drug.  When I hear the listing of side effects, it makes me want to stay away from all of them.  I also wonder about the names that a lot of the new drugs have.  I suppose they pay some marketing guru big bucks.  However, I think they have had a few misses on the names.  So this week I will offer what I think the following drugs should treat based on their names.

Enjoy!

Latuda and Farxiga – for some reason I just find these names amusing and think they would be great names for anti-gas medicines.

Telaprevir – it seems logical that this drug would used be a politician or newscaster to help them clearly read a teleprompter

Idebenone – you take it and you just disappear….

Brentuximab vedotin & Cabazitaxel – perhaps one would take either of these to treat motion sickness while riding in a taxi cab.

Abirsaterone – seems like this might be used by a male, middle voice range opera singer.

Lyrica – if you have trouble remembering words to songs, this would be the drug for you.

Anakinra-if waching Star Wars movies for too long causes a headache, take this and keep watching.

Cisplatin -this would be good to apply after you fall flat on your face.

Domperidone – not sure what this would treat, but I am sure it would be taken by the glassful and be very expensive.

Vinblastine and Warfarin – whatever this treats would be related to the military and would be highly classified.
