ok, I'm doing research for an advertising campaign. And I need to know what an FDA "black box warning" looks like. You know, the most serious FDA warning label put on medications. In a black frame of sorts. I think it's on most anti-depressants and Depo-Provera.. but I threw out my fucking Depo boxes. And I can't find any images of the actual label on Google, so uh. If you have any images of it, or are currently taking either anti-depressants, sleeping aids or depo provera.. well, um, please help. I will love you forevers. <3

PS. Viagra warning labels would work too.. for those of you who suffer from erectile dysfunction. ;p

Pff, scare tactics in American advertisement have become more subtle. Now it's about using kind old men and women to tell us about our money problems, and how they can help.

hahahahr. what I'm working on is an advertising campaign for the Museum of Sex, and it's based on warning labels put on medications. like "side effects might include rapid heart beat, the giggles, tingling in the groin area" etc.

Hotttttt idea for an advert campaign for the Museum of Sex.

I just checked my myriad of pill bottles (I love being chronically ill), and none of them have a black box label...

Do you know anyone on Accutane? I know that one has a black box warning about possible birth defects.

I was on Accutane before, but since I'm in Canada I didn't get that black box label thingy. And I couldn't have been less bothered at the time about any possible side effects, especially birth defects.

by the way, Accutane is for very extreme acne, and normally people with extreme acne aren't likely to have teh secks.
