The other night I had reasons for needing anesthesia (Lidocaine) next day I am sicker than heck. I check out under the medication and sure enough, all under rare side effects and adverse reactions. It's so frustrating to react to most drugs, I sometimes worry about what would happen if we needed to take something to combat Anthrax. If you are highly sensitive or allergic to medications, do you worry about what if? Or maybe even have a plan B?
