Not my Aleve!

December 21, 2004 at 7:35pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in 625 Elm Street

You can’t have it! You can’t take it away from me! I don’t care if it’ll kill me—long before it does so it will have cured all my little aches and pains.

Aleve is one of the few OTC medications that actually works for me. I’ll be really ticked off if they decide to put it back behind the counter just because a few namby pambies kicked the bucket after being given overdoses for the sake of medical science. Not that I have too much to worry about right now. At my current rate of consumption any change in Aleve’s availability should affect me in, oh, 8 years or so. I probably don’t even use one of those little blue miracles—no, not THAT little blue miracle—per month. But taking away my Aleve would be like ripping my security blanket out of my hands. That’s just mean!

Let’s play the what would you like to die from by taking painkillers game:

Would you rather die from heart related problems? Take Aleve (or if you want the prescription stuff take Celebrex)

Would you rather die from liver related problems? Take Tylenol

Ooh, that’s a tough call. I would probably have to go with the heart problems, though. It seems like that would be a faster and less drawn-out way to go. Liver problems could last a while your body shuts down one system at a time.

Or something like that.
