What are the Side Effects?

We have all heard the voice on the commercials for heart medications, anti depressants and heartburn medications, the voice that is low in volume and fast talking.  He or she usually pipes up in the the last 20 to 30 seconds of the commercial with the side effects of whatever they are selling you.  Vomiting, sweating, nausea, diarrhea, increased heart rate etc. etc.

There can be upwards of 100 side effects for 1 medication.  There are over 500 possible reactions to the side effects. While I understand the need for some medications, I was surprised by the amount of side effects.  Recently, my husband has been changing medications.  The side effects of the withdrawal of the medication he has been on for years,  have been equally surprising; hot flashes, uncontrollable emotions, sweating eyes (who knew this could happen?).

Next time your doctor puts you on a medication, think of that fast talking voice at the end of a commercial and do some research on the side effects, nobody should have sweating eyeballs.

Here are a few helpful sites:  www.drugs.com, www.webmd.com.

About Felicia

Hello, I am Felicia and I am one of the founding members of Health Now, Wealth Forever. When we came up with the concept of starting our family business, I was enthusiastic just to spend time working on a project with my family. But, as we have grown and expanded, my passion for educating myself and others - about alternative health options and changing the way we view finances and life - has taken over. While I admit I am not the healthiest of our group, I am working on it daily and hope that the articles I write help you to work on it with me. Thank you for supporting us and allowing us to open our minds and yours to an alternative way of look at health, wealth and life!
