Possible Side Effects


I don't know about anywhere else in the world, but here in the States prescription drugs commercials are all over the place; erectile disfunction, insomnia, depression...etc.
They are required by law to list posible side effects, and I think this is a good thing.
I once went to a Nurse Practioner who prescribed Lexapro to help with the hot flashes and night sweats, I asked the pharmacist to give me the info pakcet before filling. Guess what? one of the side effects is .....anybody??? night sweats.
Now why in God's Little Green Acre would I take a medicine that will only make the problem worse???
Now here is what I find hilarious. Next time you see a prescription sleep aide comercial...Lunesta, Ambien... listen to the list of side effects. May cause drowsiness. Isn't that just amazing??? a SLEEP AIDE that causes drowsiness. Isn't that was it is suppose to do to help you get to sleep??
That ranks up there with "careful, the hot coffee you ordered is hot"

Don't you know who he thinks he is?
