Afraid of prescription.
« on: August 19, 2014, 08:17:31 PM »
So after going back and forth all night on whether I should go to the ER or not I finally broke down and decided to go this afternoon. The doctor told me my problems were due to a neck muscle strain and gave me a few prescriptions, 10 mg FLEXERIL and 500mg NAPROSYN. After reading some of the side effects I'm now afraid to take them.

Has anyone else gone through this fear before or has had experience with the medications mentioned above.

Yup. I am constantly afraid to take my medication in case of side effects. But to be honest, If I am at a point where I am reading the side effects and debating whether I need the tablets or not maybe I dont need them so much after all and its my anxiety making things worse. I mean if I was bad enough I would be willing to take the 1 in 10,000 risk of side effects.

My wife is a long time pharmacist and she said any medication can have side effects, but that does not mean you will get them.

Imagine if they had to list the side effects of soda?

They should have to. Ridiculous that they dont. Especially what they put into that Coke Zero stuff. The nutritional facts on that are terrifying. Like 3 calories? No Sugar, Fat or Salt? Yet it tastes the EXACT same as the ridiculously sugar filled coke with loads of fat and salt etc? Just absolutely terrifying.
