Many people don't like taken medication. They read side effects and don't like what they see. But they have to write all those things down on the warning sheet. Just on the odd chance that one person may feel a certain way after taken their medication. Of all the medication I am on I can say zero side effects have ever kicked in. Long list of side effects written down with each form of medication. That doesn't mean they will happen. As for driving a family mad. I think a lot of people don't want to burden their family. Which to me is wrong. With those thoughts you find some people say nothing. Suffer in silence. I would rather people speak up and let the family know. They won't love you any less. They might not fully understand what you are going through. At least you are not suffering in silence.
