Are there any such things as medicine that prevents side effects? I've heard you get side effects from the way your body gets rid of the medication?

No general cure: There is no general answer to this question. There are a variety of reasons medications can cause side effects.

While food (like dairy) isn't a problem, a healthy young guy like you shouldn't take calcium supplements at the same time. This includes calcium-containing antacids. ...Read more

How do I stop being scared of the "possible side effects" on medication.  It prevents me from taking prescriptions for my sickness (respitory) advice?
