Everything has a side effect, from coffee to Tylenol to eating too much pizza (that’s called “getting rad”). Most prescription drug side effects are usually not that big of deal. Who cares about having dry mouth when you don’t have blood clots, right? Unfortunately, the more costly and specific the medication, the worse the side effect usually is.
While most people start taking medication with the understanding that what they’re taking is going to make them healthy, they rarely realize that they might have their brain, gait, and even skin color altered irreversibly. Once you get about halfway through this collection of strange medicine side effects, you’ll start to notice that a lot of medications that alter the way you think (anti-smoking medication, anti-depressants) can really mess you up, unless you’re into having lucid nightmares.
It’s a pipe dream to believe that there can medication without side effects, but it’s hard to believe that anyone would willingly subject their body to something knowing that there’s a small chance that they could kill their family. We’re not trying to be alarmist, we’re just trying to help. As Francis Bacon said, “Knowledge is power.”Here are the worst and weirdest side effect to prescription medication. And if you’ve experienced any of the effects on this list (or effects that were even weirder) tell us about your experience in the comments.
If you're someone who loves the way you walk, then you should find another way to treat your schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Not only does Olanzapine come with the possibility of giving you an "abnormal gait," but it also comes with "cogwheel-like rigidity," and a "mask-like face."
