Do you ever read the warnings on the medications you take? I do, both my prescriptions and the over-the-counter stuff I take. I am really surprised by what some of them say.
The warning label on Preparation H warns not to take the medication internally. Very good advice. I’m guessing if you took it internally, the only thing you could eat would be through a very small straw.
I took one prescription that warned of “**** leakage.” I quit taking that one because of the warning. I have IBS and I do not need any “**** leakage.” Can you imagine? If you take that prescription, be thankful white jeans are out of style!
The warnings that shock me the most are the ones that list the side effects as what you are trying to get rid of. There are a lot of medications for headaches that warn its users about causing headaches. I don’t take those. No reason to – I already have the headache.
Next time you start to take any medication, be sure to read the warnings. Reading those warnings could save your life. And, they could also give you a good laugh. Sounds like a win/win situation to me!
