Add in the fact that the FDA (here in the US, can't comment on international agencies) requires that every "side effect" mentioned by anyone in the trial study group be reported and the problem is vastly over-stated. i.e. - EVERY OTC and prescription headache med has "headache" as a listed side effect. Hmmmmmmm.

With regard to some of the counter-posts below, and your reply, here's my litany:

Prednisone (used for 3 cycles) Slight difficulty falling asleep for the first 3 days of dosage. NO other sides - no weight gain, bloating, sensitive skin, etc.

Sansert (used for 4 cycles) NO side effects. (I did get off them within 3 months max, however)

Imitrex tabs, 50 and 100 mg. (used for 3? 4? cycles, and up to 49 within 14 days) NO side effects.

Imitrex Nasal Spray (tried 2) NO side effects

Amerge (tried 5) NO side effects
