The only thing crazier than the sheer number of new drugs being advertised (ASK YOU DOCTOR! DO IT NOW!) is the trend in naming them.

Why does the name just say what the drug does? “BreatheBetter”. Or “LowerBloodPressure”?

The thing in my kitchen that makes coffee is called…a “coffee-maker”.

But it it was a prescription drug, it would be named “Xylifornyx”, and I’d have to ask my doctor.
