heart health

Even over-the-counter drugs can cause serious harm, so ask your doctor about the side effects of all drugs you are taking, and do additional investigative work yourself. Keep in mind that some doctors will tell you to take medications to protect themselves as a liability, even though those prescriptions may make you sicker.
