Things I Don't Understand - Episode 2: Viagra Commercials
I don't understand why commercials for Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra tell men to "Ask your doctor if you're healthy enough for sexual activity".
When a man asks for that particular kind of medication, shouldn't his physician already know why the patient is asking for it? Do they ever have men come in asking for it for reasons other than sexual activity? Is anyone asking for it for, say ... eczema or tennis elbow or rheumatoid arthritis? Rather than saying "Ask your doctor ...", I think the commercials should say "Your doctor will discuss with you whether or not you are healthy enough ..."
Honestly, men ... if your doctor doesn't already know why you're asking for one of those drugs, you really, really, really need to start looking for a new physician.
