    Patient Information Leaflets (PIL)

    Are the risks over emphasised? Do the PILs need to focus more on the good medicines do?

    Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best.

    I have to confess to giving up reading these a long time ago...
    Today I aim to be the best person I can be.
    That mean that yesterday or tomorrow I might be a better person,
    but today's best is more than good enough for today.

    I think the info leaflets need to emphasise the good they can do but also the side effects and what they cannot and can be taken with, and also be very easy to understand

    Looking at the leaflets in my meds there's a long list of possible side effects some on the face of it contradictory like may cause weight loss or weight gain, it is like they're covering every eventuality.
