It is an inescapable truth that people are taking increasingly more over-the-counter and prescription medications. New drugs for all types of disorders—high-blood pressure, stomach ulcers, diabetes, high cholesterol, and on and on—are appearing in the medical marketplace on an almost-daily basis. Unfortunately, there are more adverse drug reactions arising from these medications, and some can cause unusual and uncommon reaction patterns such as eyelash growth, hiccups, and yawning. These medications and reactions are addressed here in easily understandable layman language. It is important that anyone taking medication read this book.
