We have all heard the voice on the commercials for heart medications, anti depressants and heartburn medications, the voice that is low in volume and fast talking.  He or she usually pipes up in the the last 20 to 30 seconds of the commercial with the side effects of whatever they are selling you.  Vomiting, sweating, nausea, diarrhea, increased heart rate etc. etc.

There can be upwards of 100 side effects for 1 medication.  There are over 500 possible reactions to the side effects. While I understand the need for some medications, I was surprised by the amount of side effects.  Recently, my husband has been changing medications.  The side effects of the withdrawal of the medication he has been on for years,  have been equally surprising; hot flashes, uncontrollable emotions, sweating eyes (who knew this could happen?).

Next time your doctor puts you on a medication, think of that fast talking voice at the end of a commercial and do some research on the side effects, nobody should have sweating eyeballs.
