Federal law requires pharmaceutical advertising to list side effects, so to protect the Syndicate, here's a list from the magical makers of Suboxone:
SUBOXONE Film may not be right for everybody. SUBOXONE Film can cause serious side effects, including:
- Respiratory problems. You have a higher risk of death and coma if you take SUBOXONE Film with other medicines, such as benzodiazepines

Call your doctor right away if you notice any of these signs of liver problems: Your skin or the white part of your eyes turning yellow (jaundice), urine turning dark, stools turning light in color, you have less of an appetite, or you have stomach (abdominal) pain or nausea. Your doctor should do tests before you start taking and while you take SUBOXONE Film
- Allergic reaction. You may have a rash, hives, swelling of the face, wheezing, or a loss of blood pressure and consciousness. Call a doctor or get emergency help right away
- Opioid withdrawal. This can include: shaking, sweating more than normal, feeling hot or cold more than normal, runny nose, watery eyes, goose bumps, diarrhea, vomiting, and muscle aches. Tell your doctor if you develop any of these symptoms

Wouldn't it be wonderful if simply by calling the magic number, all your problems went away? Sadly, Iris, it doesn't work like that. Trying to make all his problems go away, is how Tommy got into this mess in the first place. Calling the helpline will force him to face his problems, not avoid them. That being said, please remember that if he doesn't call the support number, it is his choice, and not something you can control... wait a minute. Am I taking this story seriously? I think I need to take a break and come back when I don't care so much.

The boxes on the selves are labeled [scribble]. The magazines are titled [scribble]. Even the computer font is Scribble24. The only word in the pharmacy not scribbled? Viagra. Why? Because if there's one thing this strip understands, it is that Sex Sells.

If your 1984 Chrysler K-Car station wagon breaks down on the way out there, it really won't be much savings at all.
Okay, this is coming from a man who drives a 1993 Oldsmobile. With 23,000 miles on it. Yes. That is not a typo.
