I do actually get constant nasal congestion from my meds. Fun times!
I already have vivid dreams and 12-hour-long sleep cycles from my antidepressants, so I guess those are a given.
There is not a whole lot I would put up with lol.
12 hours of sleep sounds amazing...
Being pregnant, I have constant nasal congestion already. AND I sleep 12 hours.
I don't have any health issues serious enough to want to deal with those things. Maybe vivid dreams.
That would very much depend on what the medication is healing. The answer differs if the medication originally cures cancer or a mild anxiety disorder, obviously.
Well, this post has made me feel good. I don't have any kind of serious health issues.

I already live with constipation so that's not really a life altering side effect for me
Why is giant growth of your reproductive parts not an option?
The real problem with the world is a lack of awesome side effects.
I have no serious enough health issues to warrant any of these.
is this medication tolerable with other medications? like, if i had constipation, could i take laxatives?
I do struggle with intermittent incontinence and really vivid dreams. It's no walk in the park!
My most serious health problem *is* my fatness, so weight gain wouldn't really be a good side effect.
I have no health issues so all of these would be worse than nothing. Gonna opt out of that. :)
A good number of these are side effects I did experience while on various psych medications. Decided it was worth it, since they kept me from killing myself.
I'd take extremely vivid dreams even if I didn't have any health problems.
I took meds that DID cause a lot of those, and it didn't fix my issues. Now I'm 70lbs heavier and still in pain all the time.
I did experience some of these to a mild degree when I was on psych meds, and I dealt with it okay because I felt it was a necessary evil, but now I wouldn't put up with most of those if it started to interfere with my life. Unless it was life or death or something, I would probably switch meds or stop taking them.
I sleep anywhere from 9 to 12 hours a day anyway, so that's fine. Vivid dreams would be okay, too, as long as they didn't prevent me from feeling rested when I woke up.
My depression and anxiety are my two worst health problems, and gaining 50lbs would make me horribly depressed as well as worsen my anxiety. That would be the most counter-productive side effect ever.
Extremely vivid dreams isn't even a bad option, unlike all the rest of them...well, maybe if they were nightmares or night TERRORS, i mean that would suck. still the one i picked tho
