26 Pretend Prescription Products

From Pill Bottle Beer Branding to Sweet-Filled Syringes

— June 7, 2013 — Lifestyle
These mock prescription products may not deliver any real medicinal benefits, but they sure will cure whatever ails you. These products play up the concept of health improvements, taking already enjoyable products like alcohol and chocolate and applying medical-inspired branding or shapes to them.

Although an occasional glass of wine delivers health benefits like antioxidants and consuming chocolate does release a rush of feel-good endorphins, these products won’t be prescribed by a doctor. While eating or drinking something tasty is sure to quickly have you on the mend, non-edibles like pill-shaped pillows and soap can create a placebo effect that will have you feeling better in no time.

Although they are not cure-alls, these therapy-promising products make great get-well gifts for someone who has a case of the sniffles, or even a broken heart.
