We've all seen those commercials for prescription medications where they spent 90% of the commercial listing all the side effects that could affect you. They're pretty cliché by now.
Well, this one caught my attention -- a commercial for Chantix smoking cessation pills. Starts off normal. The off-camera narrator spends the final two-thirds of the commercial rattling off all the side effects.
Check it out, though. At 0:53, the narrator lists one of the side effects as "unusual dreams."
"Unusual dreams" is a side effect?
I have unusual dreams every night. Last night I had a dream that someone pulled a knife on me outside of a yoga studio at midnight because he thinks I stole his winter coat, and he pulled out his smartphone to call three of his gang-banging buddies to "take care of me."
I woke up shortly thereafter, a little shaken but much more calm knowing that my life was not in imminent danger.
So, do I need to see a doctor about this?
