Homework Help!!

 I need some ideas...

For my "Intro to Healthy Living" class I need to write about a drug. Any drug! I really want to write about something interesting (mostly because I'll be doing a speech on it). Something that might have an interesting history, or weird side-effects, I don't know. Does anybody have any ideas?

Testosterone is really interesting. (Steroids, if they need to be illegally used.) The effects they have on the bodies primary and secondary sexual characteristics in both genders is really, really fascinating!

Clyndomycin. It is one of the most powerful anitbacterial drugs around. When I took it once, it killed every living microbe in my body EXCEPT C. difficile... and then THAT one nearly killed me. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clindamycin I find it really interesting (after skimming the wiki article) that it is used to treat toxoplasmosis in cats. Heh.
