effects and side effects

 There are drugs.  If you have superpowers, you can use them to control your superpowers.  One will block them, the other will negate it or even boost you past your normal state.

Should they have side effects?

It is a world with superpowers.  I could say Brilliant Mad Scientist super-drugs that do exactly what they should and have NO side-effects.  Especially since that will make them  more appealing and sharpen the conflict.  

But it might be a bit much for realism.  Don't want it to come across as symbolic.
