if you have a strong fear of taking the first tablet of a new med you can take it in the doctors waiting room, ask doc to give you the first tablet from a sample pack, then sit there for about 1 hour, if any severe side effect happens which is very unlikely, doc will be there.....
in general, dont read the reported side effect lists of prescript
ion meds, or perhaps do read the reported side effects for asprin and non prescript
ion cold meds, if you really want to be shocked
but then the side effects of alcahol and tobacco are worse again
