Medications: It is not surprising to have these side effects. If both medications were started at same time then consider contacting your doctor to make them aware of this. This side effect may get better in a few days or your doctor may decide to hold one of the medications and continue with the other to give the body time to adjust. Do not make changes without consulting your physician.

Trouble start 2 meds: There is a problem when you start 2 medications at one time. It is not possible to determine which is causing the problem, either can. Speak to her doctor about discontinuing one of the medications. If you stop both, allow the symptoms to resolve, you can start one at a time to see the response individually.
