whose bright idea was that?

Im sitting watching television the other day and one of those commercials comes on for the latest and greatest drug. This one is for the allergy sufferers. Since I have pretty intense seasonal allergies, I stop and listen. So they get to the part with all the side effects (cause you know there are no drugs that don't have a laundry list of side effects) and this particualr drug says that while it will help your allergies, it may cause cataracts or glaucoma. Seriously? This drug may help me stop sneezing and maybe breathe easier but I might not be able to see later? What kind of trade off is that? I'm thinking if the side effects are worse than the symptoms, I'll pass.
