Prescription-Medication-Side-Effects-T-Shirt“I take Asprin for the headache caused by the Zyrtec I take for the hayfever I got from Relenza for the uneasy stomach from the Ritalin I take for the short attention span caused by the Scopederm Ts I take for the motion sickness I got from the Lomotil I take for the diarrhea caused by the Zenikal for the uncontrolled weight gain from the Paxil I take for the anxiety from Zocor I take for my high cholesterol because excersise, a good diet and regular chiropractic care are just too much trouble.” (Source:

This is a picture of a real T-shirt. My son, Pearce, sent this to me, and although I knew you’d all enjoy the humor in it, I also believe our patients can see the seriousness as well. What we put in our bodies sometimes have side effects, and to cover those side effects, many people take other medications. What a cycle!

The problem is.. many doctors do not take the time to search for the CAUSE of the problem, but instead just cover over the symptom. In our practice, we enjoy taking the time to listen to the needs of the patient, and try to discover the underlying problems associate with their symptoms. From there we are able to help relieve the patient’s immediate symptom or pain while at the same time addressing the cause of the problem.

To hoping you are all happy and healthy (and enjoying this beautiful summer)!
