All medications have side effects.  Note that when doctors say “this medication has no side effects” they are speaking medically.  What they mean is “this medication has a high probability of having no side effects.”  Also, the “Center for Medical Ethics” reports that .03% of doctors and other medical professionals exaggerate and/or lie in their statements about medications due to economic considerations.  In addition, the “Center for the Study of the Medical Mind” reports that .007% of doctors and other medical professionals suffer from “bias blindness.”  This is a psychological condition unique to doctors and other medical professionals in which the doctor (or other medical professional) has begun to believe that certain, medical fiction is medical fact.

 

The following table lists some common medications.  Note that permanent injury (often to the brain) and/or death result in 1 out of 300,000 people that take one or more of these medications.
