5 things the voices in our head tell us that the government did to its citizens in the 1980s?

Meh. Still my go-to infotainment website when things are slow around here.

I can't speak for the rest of them, but the bit on Lariam is spot-on.

My wife's grandfather had a side effect that displayed itself as a degenerative neurological disorder that turned out to be from taking Lipitor.  It only stopped progressing after he stopped taking it.

The damage was done though.

I don't know about Cracked, but Buzzfeed is definitely on the wing nut edge.

If symptoms persist, consult your physician.

Because understanding that the relationship between chemicals we ingest and body chemistry is often studied at the "statistical significance" level rather than the "guaranteed" level makes you an anti-vaxxer.

No one has ever had to switch antidepressants, antipsychotics, antiinflammatories, antiemetics, antifungals, antibiotics or antiretroviral drugs due to side effects (and that's just "anti"s I could list off the top of my head)? Side effects that were initially reported as "rare" never turn out to be "not so rare", or those reported as "minor" turn out to be "severe"?

Get'cher chemical-memory head out of your homeopathic ass, subby.

What a tremdously idiotic headline.

Drugs can sometimes cause nasty side effects.  Understanding this is key to using them.

This spring I was moved from Januvia to Glypizide (for Diabetes).  Within a couple of weeks I developed full on body pains that got progressively worse.  Only when I did some research did I find that this was considered a "rare" side effect.  I stopped taking it, went back to Januvia, and the pains went away within a week.

If you're going to put chemicals in your body to solve one issue, you should be fully aware of what other issues they can cause.

Yeah, it seems that anything that has eye related issues as a "rare" side effect is full blown pain for me, whether it's light sensitivity that even my sunglasses won't counter, or eyes that are so dry that my wife has been able to tell when I'm sleeping that I need eye drops.

Doesn't mean that Cracked doesn't deserve some trash talk, they've only got about a 40% success rate on actual interesting "lists".

Yeah, I had one for triglycerides( I think that was it) that had a 'muscle cramps, if experienced stop IMMEDIATELY' side effect that did that, supposedly super rare, yet I got it immediately.

They intentionally give all of their articles absurdly overblown and hysterical titles in order to increase page views. Every goddamn article is "The six most mindblowing examples of insects that are poised to wipe out all life on planet Earth" and ends up featuring a handful of stories like some stupid bug that was cited in one pop-science magazine as being able to eat its own body weight every five hours, which if it could be extrapolated infinitely, would mean that if these bugs ate that much all day long every day, it would be a problem. But they don't. But "The six insects that are kind of interesting" is an accurately boring headline.

tl;dr version: fark Cracked. It's busted and jumped the shark.

Yeah, Cracked is where I go when I've already read the news, Fark is slow to greenlight anything on the weekends, and when I've already jerked off three times. It's an amusing site even if the format is god-awful.

I mean, it beats trying to read Reddit.

It's you subby, because you insist that anyone that provides a message that conflicts with what you have been fed and  told to pay fealty to is a monster.

I like the toenail anti-fungal pills that have a side-effect of "death."

Really? I'm going to risk my life in order to have fungus-free toenails?

if you look to 'Cracked' (an alternative of Mad Magazine) for factual and informative insights you may need to realign your priorities.

a mag that is even more offensive for selling the masses rubbish by the pound is 'Psychology Today'. if our government gave a damn about the great unwashed that dirt rag wouldn't be allowed on the rack, or it would be touted as reliable as The National Enquirer or The Daily Mail.
