If this is your first time in this site, welcome. It has been my dream that my province, Marinduque, Philippines becomes a world tourist destination not only during Easter Week but also whole year round. You can help me achieve my dream by telling your friends about this site. The photo above is your own private beach at The Chateau Du Mer Beach Resort. The sand is not as white as Boracay, but it is only a few steps from your front yard and away from the mayhem and crowds of Boracay.

Serious Side Effects of Some Prescription Drugs
One of my blog readers after reading my article on the top 15 pharmaceutical firms suggested that I do an article on the dangerous side effects of popular prescription drugs. Here's some information that I found in the Web. Table 1 list the drugs with over 1000 complaints and Table 2 list Popular Drugs with serious side effects.
Table 1 Prescription Drugs with the Most Complaints
Here is a list of drugs with OVER 1,000 Complaints
Yasmin, Mirena, Singulair, Levaquin, Lisinopril, Nuvaring, Prednisone, Lipitor, Advair HFA (From Medications.com)
Table 2: Some Popular Drugs with Dangerous Side Effects
Actonel, Avodart, Boniva, Celebrex, Cialis, Crestor, Detrol, Ditropan, Enbrel, Fosamax, Humira, Levitra, and Lunesta.
Nexium, Paxil, Plavix, Premarin, Prilosec, Procrit, Strattera, Valtrex,
Vesicare, Viagra, Vioxx, Vytorin, Wellbutrin, Zelnorm, Zocor and Zyprexa.
The serious side effects can result in death, physical debilitation, heart conditions, stroke or cancer. The most common side effects are dizziness and nausea. Some of the popular drugs with dangerous side effects are Lipitor ( anticholesterol) linked to muscle weakness and loss of coordination, accutane linked to suicidal thoughts, Avandia and celebrex linked to heart failure, Tamoxifen for breast cancer linked to increase risk of uterine cancer, Actos ( for type 2 diabetes) linked to increase risk for bladder cancer, and Vioxx a pain killer linked to increase risk for stroke. Severity of side effects will vary from one individual to another.
If you are taking one of the drugs listed in either Table 1 or 2, be aware that the risks of side effects is more than its benefits. I suggest that you consult your physician as soon as possible. Reference: www.vaughns-1-pagers.com
