The Side Effect

BIOLOGICAL WEAPON WARNING: Potential side effect includes effective treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.
That was my first thought after seeing a commercial for a new drug, HUMIRA, designed to treat rheumatoid arthritis. In yet another case of a drug with side effects worse than the symptoms they treat, this has to be the worst one yet.
Some of these complications include: tuberculosis (some fatal infections reported), flu-like symptoms, flare-ups of Hepatitis B, lymphoma, central nervous system disorders, and serious blood disorders.
I don't know what you're talking about. I would so take that. I mean, I MIGHT get TB or lymphoma, or even die, but at least my hands wouldn't hurt, right?
