Why Do U.S. Drug Commercials Say Not To Take It If You Are Allergic To It — Are Americans That Stupid?

Click to ENLARGE and read my annotations. Base ad. for Otezla.

It is MOST blatant in this annoying TV commercial for ‘Otezla’. It says it so loud and clear. If you are lucky enough never to have heard it, just check the above video — ONCE. You need to hear it — once.

So, are Americans that stupid?

Well, we could start with Donald Trump. Enough said?

Yes, yes, yes. I know it is to do with Tort Law and product liability, BUT that raises the question as to whether American judges are that stupid — and I won’t even bother mentioning lawyers! So, this is what they are worried about. An ‘injured’ patient telling a judge: ‘Yes, your honor. I still kept on taking Otezla even though I realized I was allergic to it. I didn’t bother to tell my doctor or pharmacist. I just kept on taking Otezla because a prior drug I took, which I was also allergic to, made me incredibly stupid.

I just finding it insultingly annoying.
