* In the Director's Cut edition of ''VideoGame/{{Scratches}}'', the brief sequel/epilogue reveals that [[spoiler:the mother of the game's MadwomanInTheAttic had been taking Thalidomide, presumably accounting for her child's deformities. But thalidomide is specifically responsible for phocomelia, a birth defect in which the limbs are underdeveloped and flipper-like. This game's Bertha may be grotesque, but he's ''not'' a phocomeliac, and wouldn't be very scary if he were.]]

** Averted in ASongOfIceAndFire. The poison that [[spoiler:Oberyn Martell]] uses to kill [[spoiler:Gregor Clegane]] takes weeks or months to kill him. This aversion is itself subverted in that the poison he used ''should'' have been fatal in minutes, as soon as it reached his heart, but it was "thickened" somehow to prolong the suffering.

* In the English dub of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', Tai and Izzy search Machinedramon's city for aspirin after Kari develops a fever during the Dark Masters arc. In reality, most pharmacists recommend avoiding the use of aspirin in children under twelve, particularly for controlling viral symptoms, as this can increase the child's risk of developing a serious condition called Reye's syndrome; acetaminophen or ibuprofen would have been safer choices for Kari.

** Perhaps an example of an [[UnreliableExpositor unreliable expositor]]; her husband and sister-in-law are both dubious of Deanna's explanation, and a family friend calls it a "[[http://catalog.fborfw.com/indexdate.php?q=2002-02-18 planned accident]]".

* ''{{Series/Outlander}}'': Claire says monk's hood (aconite) has no known medicinal uses. In reality it has several, well known since ancient times, though since it's highly toxic in larger doses other medications are used now. This might be excused as ignorance, except she is a trained nurse and highly knowledgeable of herbs so you'd expect she'd know this.
