    All drugs has side effect. There is no such thing as a perfect drug except placebo. Of course when one takes the medication , we should be told of the risk factor. Honestly, how many doctors have told you about the risk factor. I have yet to come across one as far as I can remember. We have Google to thank for making our society more well informed.

    Picture the most common drug prescribe by your doctors with all these possible adverse reactions with Panadol which is paracetamol.

    Other

    Imagine the doctor headaches where he may pop NSAID himself which is another pain relief to relieve the pain in the neck to explain side effects associated with each and every prescription drugs. BTW, the total side effects associated with NSAID has more strokes where it is contraindicated or may worsen gastro intestinal, renal and liver dysfunction, impaired cardiac condition, and photosensitivity .........as each different classes of NSAID has different set of side effects where the older generation consist of gastro intestinal incidences while newer ones may present higher risk of myocardial infarction and stroke. Adding to the confusion, each NSAID drugs have different actions and reactions.
