Watch out!

I picked up my new prescription yesterday and thought I'd read through the info they include with it.  As you may know, I have a tumor on my pituitary gland that I have taken medication for for the better part of 25 years.  We switched to a new one that hasn't been available until recently.  It's supposed to be better and with less side effects.  This is what the info said:

Possible side effects are constipation, dizziness, headache, indigestion, nausea, vomiting, tiredness, weakness, shortness of breath, swelling of hands or feet, trouble breathing, chest pain, itching or rash, depression, fainting, irregular heart beat, hallucinations, cough, or confusion.  Warning:  it also says that I may develop behavioral changes such as an increase in aggression, gambling or sexual urges.  Well, if you happen to see me angrily headed to Las Vegas with a pimp in the car, call Wayne.
