Possible Side Effects is a 2006 memoir by American writer Augusten Burroughs. The book contains stories from the life of Augusten Burroughs, ranging from his childhood to the near-present.


The book received primarily positive reviews,[1][2][3] but there was much mention that his prior work, especially Running With Scissors, was better and Burroughs may be running out of material.[4][5]
