New medicine

There should be a health warning not to read the leaflet inside medication……. I have had a change of tablets, so decided to read the blurb. Amongst the so-called minor side effects are the following: headaches, dizziness, tiredness, a general feeling of being unwell, diarrhoea, constipation, stomach pain, feelings of sickness, being sick (vomiting), dry or sore mouth and throat, rash/itching, hair thinning, sensitivity to light, muscle or joint pain, depression, swelling of the hands and feet, pins and needles, blurred vision, changes in the way things taste, vertigo, confusion, and hallucinations.

Yes – I do need the tablets. But I am having second thoughts.

    :0 And add to that list of side effects..”an insatiable desire to read the package inserts for medications.” 😉

    Perhaps it also shows I have too much time on my hands, though it often does not feel like it.
