Prescription medications are developed, marketed and sold with the intent of making sick people healthier. However, even the most basic over-the-counter medications come with side effects that people using them must be aware of, and that is certainly also true for prescription drugs that require a medical professional’s approval before use. Prescription drug side effects can range from mild and tolerable to severe and life-threatening.
Pharmaceutical companies sometimes release new medications without completing enough clinical trials and tests to determine just how serious the side effects can be, and that can end up being very detrimental to the health of the thousands of people who end up taking them.
