What if you could pop down to the chemist for an instant pharmaceutical solution to your everyday problems? Let’s say you need a soulmate, a better relationship with your boss or the ability to avoid running into your ex (we’ll have a dozen of those, please).

Her 'remedies', which draw from the fantastical promises of advertising and infomercials, and each available for around $16. We reckon it’s a bargain for pills like 'make wedding speeches feel shorter'. See the full range over at Dana’s website
