Ok, well it's that time when all the dour threads (of which, like many, I become obsessed with) build up inside me and I need to post a thread sophmoric and flippant enough to relieve my tension through some good ol' head shaking and hopefully a bit of laughter. And so, in that same spirit, I present todays thread. As the title reads:

NAME YOUR FAVORITE PHARMACEUTICAL SIDE-EFFECT

Since I've posted the thread, I'll begin.

Problem: Yellow Toenails
Side-Effect Listed: Diarrhea with fainting

Ha! Yeah, you passed out and s### all over yourself, but your toenails look faaaaabulous!

There is a chemo drug that can cause rapid weight loss ... as in 5lbs in 24 hours rapid. At that rate, you would have to visibly see the expansion.

Tardive disconesia, uncontrolled shaking from psychotropic meds, have a side effect of uncontrollable shaking.
I am sure there are more of these meds-give-you-the-very-disease-you-are-treating out there, but I saw the advertisement last night and found it quite amusing. www.youtube.com...
Just like George Costanza and his faked twitchy arm that became real with medications. :-)

Not medical but when they did Pringles with Olestra one of the side effects listed was 'anal leakage'.

It isn't really a 'side effect', to me that's an actual effect.

I like the way lysergic acid can make you see bunny rabbits when really there are no bunny rabbits.

DOSAGE: take two tablets every six hours for joint pain.

SIDE EFFECTS: This drug may cause joint pain, nausea, head-ache, or shortness of breath. You may also experience muscle aches, rapid heartbeat, and ringing in the ears. If you feel faint, call your doctor. Do not consume alcohol while taking this pill; likewise, avoid red meat, shellfish, and vegetables. O.K. foods: flounder. Under no circumstances eat yak. Men can expect painful urination while sitting, especially if the penis is caught between the toilet seat and the bowl. Projectile vomiting is common in thirty percent of users-sorry, fifty per cent. If you undergo disorienting nausea accompanied by migraine and raspy breathing, double the dosage. Leg cramps are to be expected; one knee-buckler per day is normal. Bowel movements may become frequent-in fact, every ten minutes. If bowel movements become greater than twelve per hour, consult your doctor, or any doctor, or just anyone who will speak to you.

You may find yourself becoming lost or vague; this would be a good time to write a screenplay. Do not pilot a plane, unless you are among the ten per cent of users who experience "spontaneous test-pilot knowledge." If your hair begins to smell like burning tires, move away from any buildings or populated areas, and apply tincture of iodine to the head until you no longer hear what could be taken for a "countdown." May cause stigmata in Mexicans. If a fungus starts to grow between your eyebrows, call the Guinness Book of World Records. May induce a tendency to compulsively repeat the phrase "no can do." This drug may cause visions of the Virgin Mary to appear in treetops. If this happens, open a souvenir shop.

There may be an overwhelming impulse to shout out during a Catholic Mass, "I'm gonna wop you wid da ugly stick!" You may feel a powerful sense of impending doom; this is because you are about to die. Men may experience impotence, but only during intercourse. Otherwise, a powerful erection will accompany your daily "walking-around time."

Do not take this product if you are uneasy with lockjaw. Do not be near a ringing telephone that works at 900 MHz or you will be very dead, very fast. We are assuming you have had chicken pox. You also may experience a growing dissatisfaction with life along with a deep sense of melancholy - join the club! Do not be concerned if you arouse a few ticks from a Geiger counter. You might want to get a one-month trial subscription to Extreme Fighting. The hook shape of the pill will often cause it to become caught in the larynx. To remove, jam a finger down your throat while a friend holds your nose to prevent the pill from lodging in a nasal passage. Then throw yourself stomach first on the back portion of a chair. The expulsion of air should eject the pill out of the mouth, unless it goes into a sinus cavity, or the brain. WARNING: This drug may shorten your intestines by twenty-one feet. Has been known to cause birth defects in the user retroactively. Passing in front of TV may cause the screen to moiré.

When the notes on a headache med names migraine as a (possible) side effect.

One of my favorite weird side effect lists was from the drug Mirapex, used to treat Parkinson's and other dopamine-deficit conditions. Mirapex caused some people to become alcoholics, shopaholics, sex addicts, and gambling addicts.

Channeling my 8 year-old lover of gross jokes, I got a kick out of the weight loss drug Orlistat, which could cause "oily rectal discharge". People were so utterly grossed out by the description, the manufacturer changed the commercials. They removed the word "rectal". I remember cracking up hearing "oily discharge" on the commercials. Believe it or not, I've seen it in drugstores under the name "Alli", so it's not only still available, it's over the counter! Who would actually consume this garbage?

Gross out

Oh my.... I do not want ANY of that stuff.

The worst is when they give you a depression medication and when you take it you spend the whole day crying. Then the doctor says... " Well looks like its not a seraton. Problem." I was not depressed to begin with!


When meds do their job... GREAT! Otherwise keep me the heck away from them.

Well, it wasn't the drug, but a derivative of the same base product.

Many foods have the same contents as drug contents. Propylene Glycol is a common one which comes to mind.

One reason I like pringles is because they are low in fat and salt and still tasty. and less BS.

here're the ingredients DRIED POTATOES, VEGETABLE OIL (CORN, COTTONSEED, HIGH OLEIC SOYBEAN, AND/OR SUNFLOWER OIL), DEGERMINATED YELLOW CORN FLOUR, CORNSTARCH, RICE FLOUR, MALTODEXTRIN, MONO- AND DIGLYCERIDES, SALT, WHEAT STARCH.

Terrible?

Antidepressants that suicidal folks are prescribed being labelled with "Suicidal Feelings" as a side effect has to be the winner for me




Suicidal feelings There is a possibility that taking an antidepressant could make you feel suicidal.


www.mind.org.uk...


"Doctor I want to end it all right now!!!"

"Here, take this tablet it will stop making you feel like killing yourself.
Let me know if you feel like killing yourself however so that I can prescribe you a different medicine."
