Well said, Fruitcake. It's encouraging that science is progressing to help people with certain debillitating diseases, but you're right- we really don't know the effects of these drugs we are taking. Most of us will do whatever it takes to achieve some sort of "normalcy", to be able to function in society without pain, nausea, fatigue, restroom-runs, etc. It's very important to do as much research as possible before starting any medication, because you know your body better than any doctor.
