A very long time ago television started advertising medications over the counter and prescriped by doctors medications the problem is this we get rid of one illness for another. I use to laugh at these commercials because to me it was a joke. After years of this continuing it wasn't a joke but reality. Today it is the same and doctors prescribe medications and never tell you the side affects. I went to pick up a prescription and it had allof these papers attached to the prescription bag. My phamacist always talk with you before releasing medications to you to make sure you understand the side affects of the medication.
