Default funny names for prescription drugs..

what's with the stupid names they think up for drugs these days?
right now, i have the tv on in the background, and i heard an add for something called "Ass effects", so i just had to look and see what it was all about. it was something called "Aciphex" that i think had something to do with controlling heartburn..
can you just imagine the young 20-something marketing people snickering as they pitched the name for their new acid reflux drug to the CEO of the drug company?

I always thought "Buttblowtazeem" would be a good name for a laxative.

when i posted this thread, i was talking about an actual, honest to god for real ad i saw on tv for drugs that have a name that is a play on what it does, with a somewhat funny sounding name.
can anyone think of any other funny sounding drug names that you are supposed to ask your doctor about at your next visit? you know- the ones in the commercials they spend 5 seconds saying how wonderful they are, then they spend the other 25 seconds of the commercial warning you about all the fun side effects that generally range from a slight itch to death..

As usual, Andy is right
If it doesn't fit, force it. If it breaks, it needed to be replaced anyway.

Did you know the main ingredient in pills of all kinds, especially asprin, is paper? It is used as a filler. My sales rep for Chemprene conveyor belting calls on a Bayer asprin plant and asked the purchasing agent why do they use such a huge amount of paper in an asprin plant. He told him it was a filler and all the drug manufacturers use tons of it as the bulk of the drug they make. It was something I sure didn't know.
