Of course; the side effects of those drugs used to treat MS wasn't as bad as the ones the FDA is approving now (or are they?):

I can see it now:

 

Warning, this drug will make you fat, swell at random locations all over your body, and make you dizzy, other than that, this is a great drug. Please plead with your doctor to prescribe this medication for your hypochondriac condition now.

 

In the event of uncomfortable side-effects, such as rashes, severe bloating, permanent disfigurements, organ failure, or death, please inform your doctor so alternative, equally harmful – but in different ways, medications can be prescribed.

 

In studies, most people did not find the side-effects worth the trouble of trying to convince their doctor that they really are serious side-effects (or the patient was dead so could not complain) and your quality of life actually was better before taking the medication.

 

What a mess we have let ourselves be led into by giving the pharmaceuticals so much power over our lives... and deaths.

Tomorrow is my final chemo treatment, thank God. This is the first time I stuck it out all the way through without stopping. I've always heard that "...what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger", I can related to the phrase this time.
Thank you guys for all you're positive thought and prayer.
