Take The Lunesta Challenge

Big Pharma Hits a New Marketing Low 

In case you haven’t seen the commercials with the green (more like neon green or Chernobyl green) butterflies flitting around the heads and beds of people taking the latest sleep aid Lunesta you’re lucky.

But read on here cause you should know that using sleeping pills is touted as a challenge, something that you should be proud of I guess.

Shame on the FDA. The text below is from an email I received after signing up for the Lunesta Challenge. NBN wonders if McKesson is planning a rewards program, too.
