Many over-the-counter drugs have been around for years and are effective at relieving pain, heartburn and other ailments. Unfortunately, many of these drugs come with side effects that can be worse than the ailment you are trying to relieve. Thousands of people die or suffer life-changing injuries every year as a result of using over-the-counter drugs they assumed were safe.
