Can You Tell The Difference Between Drug Side Effects And Fairy Tale Plot Points?

It’s surprisingly difficult.

Some drug side effects are pretty strange — so strange that it’s hard to tell them apart from things that happen in fairy tales. See if you can tell whether each of the following is a known drug side effect, something unfortunate that befalls a fairy tale character, or both. (BuzzFeed gathered all side effects data from Drugs.com.)
