An important caveat: the response to these drugs is unpredictable. For some people it doesn’t show up ever. Others – constantly. Third half of life can not experience light sensitivity, until one day she doesn’t shoot. Which category you belong, it is impossible to predict.
So the best way to avoid trouble is not to appear on the sun if you use dangerous drugs.
