All of us take medicines to cure our disease or ailments but what if that drug that your doctor prescribed is the cause of your new ailment? Wow that would be unacceptable if that happened to me. I remember taking a medicine that my doctor prescribed for my stomach problem but when I noticed changes in my body and different side effects, I immediately stopped taking it. My doctor in turn prescribed another medicine when I told her about the side effects.
Some drugs don’t really show side effects instantly but when used in prolonged periods of time, it may become destructive just like what Actos has done to a lot of diabetic patients.

It was approved as a diabetic drug but recently, studies showed that Actos have been causing serious side effects to a lot of patients.
