Doesn't it seem like that those medication commercials try to "enlighten" you with the side effects of a medication. Listen to how they read the side effects/interactions and how they make it sound so pleasant, almost inviting. Don't get drawn in and caught up in the trap. Direct-to-consumer marketing of prescription medications should never happen. Tune these out and even flip the channel if you need to. Do not attract what you do not need nor what you think you do not need. Really listen the next time to the message. You will feel the difference in perception when you tune in to tune out!To your health. Empowered Choices!
If so, a few important tips:
Do you take oral contraceptives? If so, do you know that there are several medications that can decrease the effectiveness of birth control? I've found that many do not, even when this prescription comes from the same doctor. Please be sure to ask your pharmacist! (And read your patient information leaflets!)
