Although this may not happen, and although it would require judgment, I would love to see a sticky of all prescription medicine (in symptom management)....particularly the side effect profile. It would look like this:

Neurontin: low side effect profile
Lyrica: low side effect profile

Lamotrigine: rare but very serious side effects (detail added...)

Tegretol: some potentially serious side effects (detail added...)

It could go from "cleanest" to "least clean" drugs. Maybe also mechanism of action could be added. As for efficacy, well, we can leave that out of the sticky.

come to think of it, symptom management should be split into --

-prescription medications
-other symptom management
