  • These are very well tolerated medications. The side effect profile is very good. What specific side effect are you concerned about? and do you have any symptoms?
  • You should go back on these medications until you had a chance to discuss it with your doctor
  • Be aware, that just because some side effects are listed on the brochure, it does not mean you will develop them. MOST of them are extremely rare and if you have been on these medications for awhile, and have not had problems, you will very unlikely develop andy of these side effects
