Sometimes the Internet provides too much information

I researched aka read up on the RX I was to get today via infussion. Did nothing but unsettle my nerves, which is not like me, I am vwry stoic when it comes to medical procedures. Back home, I now await to arrival of any of the side effects I read about.

I have learned to never go online looking for medical info. I either have it all or will be dying from something. Hope you feel better soon and no side effects. My previous md told me once they need to include any side effects even if only one person had it. Cheryl

I agree with you. I HAVE to take Lipitor, as my family has a strong history of heart disease on BOTH sides. It affects my memory, especially for names, and I am bothered by it. However my doctor thinks the risk is well worth the benefit, so I'm pretty stuck with it. Originally doctors didn't believe the problem was a side effect, but I believe there is now enough evidence to call it a true side effect--I've read quite a bit about it. I used to be especially good at remembering names but I'm just living with it.

I hope you haven't experienced any side effects and are feeling fine.

I hope all went okay! Yeah, never go online and look up medical information! Way too scary and I found that you usually will find "worst case scenarios"..especially in any chat style arenas. I learned this the hard way from looking up my symptoms prior to being diagnosed with MS. Once I was diagnosed, I never went online to look up medical stuff again because I didn't want to put myself through it!
Good luck!
