Side effects? Adverse effects!

Whatever you choose to call them, they are on the rise…

The label on the average commercial drug product lists 70 different potential adverse effects. In a study appearing in the Archives of Internal Medicine, researchers found that with more commonly prescribed drugs the number of listed adverse effects averaged around 100. The 2011 study ,which involved analysis of more than 5,600 drug labels and more than half a million labelled effects found that a single label listed as many as  535 adverse reactions. The number of potential adverse effects of modern medicine can overwhelm doctors trying to weigh the risks and benefits when prescribing a medicine.
