These type things are why my mom ALWAYS does her research before taking and prescribed drugs.

Only thing I'd trust would be pot.

Isn't the point - no matter how few have experienced said effects - that the drug apparently carries risk of said effects?

I mean shouldn't they label that you might die if a couple o' people died as a side effect?

If only one person has experienced any side effects or symptoms when on medication, it has to be written out even though it may or may not be related to the drug in use.
It does look kinda funny and scary though when you read the side effects list.

I love the acne one... I would rather live with acne than be depressed and crazy... I guess I'm just weird like that (;

I have several hobbies, but the one I do the most is fishkeeping. I have 5 tanks right now, 1 salt and 4 fresh, one of those is cold water and the others tropical.

I wish you told us what is in fact your hobby, cause now I can't help myself but to think you are shrinking human heads in your garage.
Shrunken heads make everyone jealous and bitter, and they most definitely liven your home with their unique beauty.

I'm so glad that, despite a lifetime of various neurotic tendencies, I never wanted to be bothered with taking psychoactive medication. Yay for laziness! ;)

Now that I'm older, I deal with crap through my hobbies. A good, creative and satisfying hobby can give your life a whole new importance. Plus, what are the side effects? Impressing other people? Making faux-friends jealous and bitter? Livening your home with one-of-a-kind beauty?

I find it ironic that a drug called FLOMAX could result in a decrease in semen.

This is by design. Drug companies sell you a pill to treat ailment #1 thus causing ailment #2-5 which they conveniently have a pill to treat. This business concept is as old as time.

My favorite was the asthma-medicine that may result in asthma-related death...

Or maybe the antipsychotika, which has the possible side effect of death. Great idea handing a severely depressed person something they may kill themselves with.

Best side effect EVER is when I got some pills once and the conversation went:

Doc - "Are you particularly fond of grape-juice?"
Me - "Not fanatically, no... Why?"
Doc - "It might not be wise to combine grape-juice with these pills."
Me - "What could happen?"
Doc - "We're not a hundred percent sure... but... uhm...JUST DON'T DRINK GRAPE-JUICE... ok?"

My favorite must be Accutane: you take these pills to get rid of the psycho-social consequences acne have on your life, and then you end up as a manic-depressive, half blind and deaf individual who wears maxi pads cause of the rectal bleeding.

I bet that does wonders for your social life.
