Joseph,

The lists of possible side effects on most drugs is a bit too long. Most listed side effects will have a very low rate of occurence, or be of concern only in specific sub-groups. I would prefer that I be given clear information on LIKELY side effects, and a discussion if I fall into any minority risk groups (compromised immune, pregnant, young, Mylasian Yak Herders, etc). The information on other side effects should be available, but the patient should only be bothered with things of a reasonable concern.
