My wife has a sinus infection at the moment. She gave her body time to beat it on its own but finally gave up and went to the doctor. She got two prescriptions. One was an antibiotic and the second was a non-steroid rinse for her nose.

The nose rinse came with a paper about 18 inches long with very small print on both sides giving you more information than you would probably ever read about not only taking the medication, but every possible side effect the medication might have.

We live in a litigious society so I understand why drug companies and the Food and Drug Administration want to cover all of their bases. It takes an average of twelve years for a drug to travel from the research lab to the patient. In addition, only five in 5,000 drugs that begin preclinical testing ever make it to human testing. Of those, only one in five is ever approved for human usage.
