I think I’m going to try Valtrex

Wow. Media really is pervasive. I don’t watch much, but clearly watch enough that the word “Valtrex” got stuck in my head. I don’t know if you’ve ever had a day where just a word gets stuck in your head. It’s a catchy word “Valtrex.” Sounds like the name of a villain in some sort of Post-Star Wars sword & sorcery movie, like Krull or Time Bandits. BOW DOWN BEFORE VALTREX! So I’ve got this word in my head and I decide I’m going to go look up this thing that has clearly been advertitsed so much that I can’t get the word out of my head. It’s a Herpes medication. Is there any better sign how pervasive drug companies are than the fact that I’ve been repeating the name of a herpes medication in my head all day.
