Your Pill Is Like Bad Medicine
A few of the side effects of the anti-depressant Paxil are "thoughts of suicide" and "potential suicidal behavior." In other words, a pill that is supposed to keep you from being depressed could very well make you want to off yourself. Wow.

This reminds me of the social anxiety pill that causes impotence. Seriously, I'm not making it up. Poor son of a bitch finally gets the nerve to ask out a girl and he ends up praying she's not the type to give it up on a first date. That's just wrong.

Admission: A few years ago I took some recreational Viagra. I was worried about having a blue tint to my vision, which was a documented side effect. That never happened, but to this very day I get a raging boner every time I see Smurfette. Strange, huh? You just never know with pills.

Even though I think the country is WAY overmedicated, this isn't some sort of crazy-ass Tom Cruise Scientology anti-prescription drug rant. Controlled drugs save lives on a daily basis and have increased life expectancy to the point that I won't go to Kroger during Senior Citizen Discount Days. Really, you don't want to get between an old man and his chance to save a nickel.

So lets take our pills so we don't croak, but make sure the side effects aren't worse than the disease you're trying to cure.

Sometimes you can be so depressed that killing yourself just smacks of too much effort. Then you go on an antidepressant and find that you have just enough energy to do the deed.

Maybe they make a pill that counteracts the side effects of the first pill.

What about the commerical we saw for that medicine designed for people with bladder control problems. Diarrhea was one of the main side effects! I don't know about you, but I'd rather piss my pants that shit them!

I need a pill that prevents me from fearing all the side effects of the other pills.

Headache is a specific side-effect yielded by Viagra, the Pfizer manufactured drug to treat erectile dysfunction in men and hence you may suffer from mild to serious headache as you start using Viagra to treat your erectile dysfunction. However, headaches as well as other side-effects of Viagra are temporary and as such they disappear over a period of time but if you fall prey to any of the side-effects of Viagra, contact the doctor immediately.
