May the meds be with you

'Side Effects' preems in Gotham at AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13

Steven Soderbergh’s latest film for Open Road Films, “Side Effects,” may spur some auds to worry about their own meds. But co-producer and consultant Dr. Sasha Bardey says not to worry too much.

“A lot of medications have side effects, but keep in mind, side effects are rare — but we’re talking about millions of people taking a medication,” said Bardey at Thursday’s Gotham preem at AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13. “So even if a side effect happens 1% of the time, you have 100,000 people taking it: Do the math.”
