@Hawaii_Jake Yes. I hate when that happens.

These are some of the worst side effects that I actually had from real life. NSFW as well but I kept them to myself.

Peripheral neuropathy. Imagine pins and needles in your hands and feet that never gets better and won’t go away.

I am continually amazed at Pharma commercials pushing one product or another and they blast through the side-effects. I think one of the ones I saw had to do with plaque psoriasis. A disease that is largely cosmetic…it doesn’t look good. Yes, it can itch and may be painful too. But the side effects involved potentials for everything from dry mouth to a breakdown of your immune system to death. How did this drug get FDA approval?

Any medication that brings nausea is terrible for me. I’ll take two weeks of congestion over an hour of nausea.

Recently I had a sinus infection and was prescribed an antibiotic that has a “black box” FDA warning for tendinitis. The nurse practitioner told me about it, but normally, I don’t have adverse reactions. Guess what – tendinitis was mine! Especially the Achilles tendon in my right foot, but also discomfort in my knees, elbows, and shoulders. It took three weeks before everything except my right foot to get back to normal. I was already dealing with tendinitis in that foot, so the drug made it worse. It’s getting better, but after six weeks, I’m over it!
