Dear Pharma Industry,

Do you really think we're that stupid?

Was this really necessary or was it some sort of joke or bet amongst pharmaceutical copy writers, seeing who can get the word poo into a trustworthy medical leaflet? Should this maybe read: "... your faeces (no this is not a spelling mistake of face, there is no danger to your fake tan)."
Strangely enough the very same sentence also mentioned the term "urine", but without any further explanation, so just in case you didn't know, that's otherwise known as wee, not to be confused with wii.
Maybe instead of worrying about the discolouration of their poo and wee, people should start reading the dictionary and maybe one day we'll all be able to outsmart these patronising pharmaceutical authors. Why not aim for a new word every day? 

Anyway, after all that I got a terrible reaction to amoxicillin, not resulting in pale poo, but a horrible rash and severe itching, making me feel like faeces for a few days.
