Just an FYI, I learned yesterday that a drug I've taken since 2006 has a side effect of possible bone marrow suppression and messes up blood cells (which might explain part of my anemia thread). No Dr. ever mentioned this to me.

My point is some of these drugs (and especially the psychotropics which who knows what they really do and the long term effects of taking them) advertise SOME side effects but not all.

So I'd advise googling on any new drug you are prescribed (or maybe even any drug you take) to find out exactly what others are experiencing. I'm on another one that has caused hair loss for many and yet no Dr. ever mentioned that to me.

Just thought I'd share.

Googling causes paranoia about med,etc. Knowig side effects is one thing but
scouring internet about them can be worse...just be careful or one would take NOTHING
because of googling....

Yes, I can see that angle and you make a good point, but I also learned what supplements to take to not lose the hair by googling, so maybe it was a good thing.
