Side Effects

Medications do not affect all people in the same way. Almost all medications have some undesired effects, called side effects. Side effects can be mild, serious, or somewhere in between. You should always be told about possible side effects before you begin taking a medication, and you should let your doctor know about any side effects you notice during your treatment. If the side effects are serious, you should contact your doctor or go to the emergency room right away.
