1.) constipation (prepare to stock up on Miralax)
2.) sedation (prepare to not want to get out of
bed too much)
5.) pinpoint pupils
.... the list goes on.
AFTER an initial "getting use
d to" period of
time (a few days, weeks, or months), MOST of
these side effects
will either disappear, or, become tolerable.
If it were me, in your shoes, I would NOT blanketly "refuse
" to try your doctor's suggestion.
