Every medication on the market will have some sort of a clinical side effect associated to it. Because a medication is altering the bodies chemical stability, it is bound to cause at least one reaction within the body. The question is though, was this a side effect or an adverse event?
Research has found that 70% of the United States population is on one or more prescription medications. The truth behind every medication, including over-the-counter medications, is that each one slowly depletes essential vitamins and minerals. This can be of great concern bearing in mind many Americans are suffering from low levels of vitamins and minerals from a poor diet or inherent family history.
