    There are some drugs that are very unpopular with patients. "X" is one of them.  Here are its ratings:

    One might wonder whether there is anything redeeming about the drug?  For example, can it be prescribed under different circumstances to make it more palatable?

    Does not look like it can!  Since 78% of patients rates the drug as a complete flop, there is not even any room left over even for the placebo effect...

    What is its most common side-effect?  Varieties of pain!
