When we hear the word side effect, our first inclination is to think about the negative side of the drugs. Despite the perception, there are also positive side effects on many medication and drugs according to AARP.
Season flu shots are great in preventing the flu, but researches have found that these flu shots could reduce your chances of heart disease and stroke by a whopping 48 percent. The drug Metformin that treats diabetes improves insulin response, and is a possible risk lower effect for breast cancer. Finally, the blood pressure lowering drug Beta-blockers lower pulse rates and improve blood flow, leading to a 40 percent reduction in Alzheimer's lesions in the brain, thus lowering the risk of dementia.
Like other negative side effects, these positive effects don't apply to everyone either. While it is still best to stay healthy through a good lifestyle, it is encouraging to see medical researches finding potentially helpful uses for some of the popular drugs around.
