Do the warnings on medicine packages make us safer?


A friend had a cold, bought some cold medicine and looked all over the package for the dose. There were 5 of us who looked at the package. One of the 3 PhD's in the group said it only has one in the package so maybe that's the dose. Another PhD's said take two they are small. I finally mentioned that the directions on garden products are usually hidden on page 5 of the booklet that you don't know came with the product until you see a tiny sign that says lift here. The person holding the box looked. There was a little tag that said lift here. The directions were on page 4.

    I find them scary - recently had some ointment prescribed for an allergy - the contraindications that 'may' happen were endless and frightening. I'd rather have the allergy.
