It’s hard to get through a TV show, especially morning or evening news, without a barrage of drug commercials. In other countries, drug company commercials are illegal. Do you think running those ads is a service or would you rather not see them? By law, they have to list side effects, which often take up most of the commercials! Do the side effects listed kind of freak you out? Since the shot for Covid has been offered, the side effects on these drug commercials now contain a warning for that as well. You MUST tell your doctor if you have had the shot before going on certain prescriptions.

Side effects are listed as stomach aches, vomiting and diarrhea, and risk of death.

Do you pay attention to the list of side effects?
