There are some Medications that are well designed.
Some could cost you your life!
After all, they are Man-Made
so be careful that these inventions don't misfire on you.
It's wise to have questions and check things out.
In Australia, you can request an Info Sheet from your Chemist
about the benefits and side-effects.
Most GP/MDs are encouraged by the Establishment to outweigh the side-effects
with the benefits. In fact, your local Medical Practice has frequent visits
from various Drug Company Representatives promoting their products
(they are notorious for leaving out the side-effects)
One could even call them Peddlers for Profits
Please do your best to make sure this is not to your Loss.
