Now I have been a forum member for a few months I have to admit there are two types of post that bemuse me!
The first is "I have symptom X, could it be drug Y I was recently perscribed?" Statins and the beta blocker Bisoprolol are the most frequent, where people seem to expect (even want) side effects! Some verge on the bizarre.
The next is "I have been prescribed drug Z. Has anybody taken this and what side effects did they have?"
When I was younger people were prescribed medication, took it and in the vast majority of cases it worked as it was meant to. What has caused the current mindset? Is it just the internet that is full of misinformation. It also puzzles me that people are willing to listen to some fringe self promoting guru who pops a few videos up on YouTube!
What are your thoughts?
