Drug Warnings

Since drug companies are advertising to the public on TV they have to tell us about all the dire consequences of using their products, such as ‘your hair will fall out, lost libido and possible stroke’ They always say…‘do not use if you are using an MAO inhibitor’. Other than the John Birch Society, what is an MAO inhibitor?

Their side effects may include chest pains, headaches, nausea, etc…[/ul][/li]
