Safe??: Drugs thought of in 3 ways: Efficacy, safety, tolerability. Does it work? Is it safe? Are there side effects? Drug or combination of drugs can be quite "safe" but cause intolerable side effects; or cause only minor side effects but be dangerous in some other way. Your meds were prescribed. You MUST tell the prescriber so that (s)he can PROTECT you from possible safety consequences.
