In Pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and generic name. For example, the trade name of Tylenol also has a generic name of Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called Naproxen. Amoxil is also called Amoxicillin and Advil is also called Ibuprofen.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

Pfizer Corp. announced today that Viagra will soon be available in liquid form, and will be marketed by Pepsi Cola as a power beverage suitable for use as a mixer. It will now be possible for a man to literally pour himself a stiff one. Obviously we can no longer call this a soft drink, and it gives new meaning to the names of “cocktails”, “highballs” and just a good old-fashioned “stiff drink”. Pepsi will market the new concoction by the name of MOUNT & DO.

Thought for the day: There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer’s research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

  • Interestingly, Viagra was discovered when scientists were trying to develop a nitric oxide synthase inhibitor to lower blood pressure. The interesting side effects of Viagra stem from this search for a more noble cure.

    Now, Viagra pretty much subsidizes Pfizer’s research on AD, HIV etc, etc., especially now that the patent on prilosec is up. Consumers spending more money on Viagra than AD drugs is a good thing, not a bad thing. Doesn’t mean there is a lot of research on AD, to which I can attest. Lots of federal, state, and donated dollars spent on AD research (don’t worry though, there is a lot of consumer money spent on memantine, tacrine, and those drugs too), whereas the consumer picks up the tab on Viagra. I have no problem with this model.
