    Lots of times the side effects are worse than what
    they’re suppose to help you for.

    And they’ll gladly sell you another set of pills to treat the side effects. Big Pharma covers most of the angles and makes a profit on all of them

    This sort of thing is actually fairly typical, in part because the body may over-react to a drug. So, a painkilling drug might put you in more pain if your body overreacts to it.

    My dad had low blood pressure for most of his life, but as he got up into his seventies he developed really bad arthritis. The doctors prescribed him some drugs for this, but they put his blood pressure up until he needed drugs to control that. The blood pressure drugs caused his heart to misbehave, so the doctors prescribed more drugs to treat that … He ended up taking six or seven medications just to counteract the effects of all the others …

    Unfortunately, this is all too common! And, sometimes, dangerous.

    Yes…most of them say that. Those are the ones I don’t ask my doctor for.

    After his question to the Doc;here’s the Question to Bung: Will you be drunk or sober? Silly question since we ARE talking about Bung;in which case he’ll hardly notice the difference.
