In the battle against HIV/AIDS
, it’s impossible to have too many weapons. Now, within the same month, the FDA has loaded up on two promising additions to our country’s arsenal.
A new drug and the recently approved at-home HIV test could be a large part of the future of HIV resistance . . . although not everyone is happy.
There’s a drug out there that promises to be an aid for those who have trouble staying awake after a restless night. But this new drug, that’s being marketed towards those with sleep disorders, can also easily be used as a pick-me-up for the masses . . . A pick-me-up with a laundry list of side effects.
We spend so much time worrying about many of the potentially major side effects
that come with our routine medications and prescription drugs. But what about side effects that may not be as obvious?
You can’t help but laugh when it’s time for prescription drug commercials
to list some of the side effects and symptoms. They always set the tone with serene, beautiful music while showing families laughing, playing and relaxing in gorgeous landscapes . . . all while a soothing voice begins to list off completely horrible symptoms like “diarrhea, vomiting, severe migraines, nausea, genital swelling,” and a host of other terrible maladies.
