I love that one. Funny thing is, with the new black box warnings, we're seeing that this ad was a prediction of the future. It's not too far off.
:laugh:

We have that hanging in our resident's on-call room.

I've got lots of these. I think we had a similar thread on this a while back.

I have lots of these vintage psych med ads, but they're too big to thumbnail. Maybe I'll link them to a site so I can show them. I've got a great asian prozac ad you guys have to see.
You should upload them to flickr for the world to see :)

It says: "In a world where certainties are few...no wonder Ativan (lorazepam) C-IV is prescribed by so many caring clinicians."

Not only is it creepy in that it implies that uncertainty about the future should be medicated away, but that this was from not too long ago (1987).
