In brief: Reframing reactions

Any and all drugs have the potential to cause adverse drug reaction.
Even sugar pill (placebo) causes adverse drug reaction. Our brain is a powerfully imaginative organ. Art of medicine is to use the brain's power to enhance healing. Rather than preventing non-severe adverse reactions, they can be reframed/understood as indicators that the drug has been successfully delivered.
