Re: cotizone


I read the prescribing info thoroughly for the shots and it actually says that craving for chocolate chipmint ice cream is one of the chief side effects. It goes on to say that if this occurs, call all of your CP buddies right away and meet them at the nearest 31 Flavors. The only negative side effect is that you have to pay.

So there you have it right from the product documentation. What could be more reliable?
