What do I do if I experience side effects?

Unfortunately, no prescription medication is without the possibility of side effects.

Side effects can happen at any time in the treatment journey, they can develop when you start a new medication or after taking it for a while. Side effects may also occur if you change your dosage or suddenly stop taking a medication. If you begin to take other medications or herbal remedies, interactions among these medications may also cause side effects. It is important to know that although side effects can happen, they are not always serious and not everybody will experience them.

To read about side effects specific to your treatment plan, please visit the "Help" section in your patient profile or visit our support centre.

If you experience side effects and they worry you, please message our Medical Support Team here for additional support.

If your symptoms get worse, or you begin to experience chest pain, shortness of breath, loss of consciousness, numbness or circulation issues, our Medical Team recommends calling an ambulance on 000 or attend your nearest emergency department urgently.
