I was sitting here flipping back and forth between the U of M/MSU game (go BLUE!!! even though we lost) and Mitch Albom's 'The Five People You Meet In Heaven' when an ad came on for "Enbrel". Has anyone seen what the possible side effects are on this stuff??? Or any medications for that matter! First, it says this: "In rare cases, Etanercept has caused serious blood problems. Notify your doctor immediately if you develop persistent fever; extreme or unusual fatigue; unexplained or prolonged bruising or bleeding; black, bloody or tarry stools; fever or chills; or signs of infection such as sore throat or pale skin. These symptoms may be signs of blood problems." Some of the side effects listed: serious blood problems, black, bloody or tarry stools, visual disturbances, seizures, depression, TUBERCULOSIS.
Now, let me ask you all this...and feel free to actually answer...would you take something that might cause Tuberculosis??? Seriously??? I know I wouldn't. I try not to take MOTRIN unless absolutely necessary...don't like putting chemicals like that in my body.
Anyways...have a good night all.
