Default Pharmacology

Subject: no humor in medicine?

Who says the Medical profession is a bunch of fuddy-duddies? This was
forwarded by a certain medical practitioner who shall remain nameless.

Pharmacology Terminology Up-up-update

In Pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and a generic
name. For example, the product known commercially as Tylenol? is
known generically as Acetaminophen. Aleve? is also called Naproxen,
Amoxil? is Amoxicillin, and Advil ? is also called Ibuprofen.

The FDA has been seeking a generic name for Viagra?. After careful
consideration by a team of government experts, the agency has
announced that it has approved the generic name of Mycoxafloppin.
Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix,
and Ibepokin.

At a press conference held this morning, Pfizer Corp. announced that
Viagra?/Mycoxafloppin will soon be available in liquid form. It will
be marketed in a joint venture with PepsiCo, Inc., as a power beverage
under the name Mount?n?Do?.

A PepsiCo spokesperson noted that ?The new elixir will be especially
suitable for use as a mixer. It will now be possible for a man to
literally ?pour himself a stiff one.??

The spokesperson continued, ?Obviously, we cannot call Mount?n?Do? a
?soft drink.? It will give new meaning to such terms as ?cocktails,?
?high balls,? and ?stiff drinks.??

In response, National Institutes for Mental Health scientist Margaret
Tuttut-Wheiner noted that ?There is more money being spent today on
breast implants and Viagra than on Alzheimer?s research. This means
that by 2035, there will be a large elderly population with perky
boobs and massive erections, with absolutely no recollection of what
to do with them.?
