    Patient Information Leaflets (PIL)

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

    I have to confess to giving up reading these a long time ago...

    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.
