4. There are people out there now who have serious illnesses and are one multiple kinds of medication. But all of them seem to be prescribed to fix the side effect that is happening from the medication taken to fix the problem. Example: take meds A for illness take meds B for side effect from meds A then take meds C for side effects from meds B side effects and now you have developed a new illness because your body cant handle meds A and C together. Wouldnt that be enough to make you not want to take anything?
