W5 Activity: Erectile Dysfunction
I feel that medications in American society have a strong role in how people live today, the phrase “there’s a pill for that” used to be a joke, but now it seems that there is a pill for everything. The biggest issue now is when there isn’t a pill or cream for that problem no matter what it is. The condition that I feel is heavily medicalized is the different medications for Erectile Dysfunction instead of saying well that’s it or not this time we have developed several ways to get or keep things awake. The unfortunate problem is the side effects from these happy drugs that the users do not or will not understand that include warmth or redness in the face, neck, or chest; stuffy nose; headaches, stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea, and an inability to differentiate between the colors green and blue. Loss of hearing, ringing in the ears and dizziness are other potential side effects. This is the list from Viagra the Cialis list is about five pages long and if it can go wrong it will. In advertising its shows an older man with his wife or girlfriend and the female is ready to have intercourse and with the help of the pill the experience will be an amazing one. They use the fact that there is no time like the present, but never tells you the actual time it takes to take effect and then the warnings and side effects they share is spoken so fast that unless you play it in slow time you will never understand it. The need for the pill seems to be a heavenly experience and with it you will be free like the gods and you will never look back. Unfortunately the untold story about what happens once you start you can’t stop. Your body becomes dependent to the drug for life.
