Talk to the Doctor: Make sure the doctor or the health care provider is aware of this. They will probably be able to help and reduce the side-effects. Many times the doctor or non-physician provider is totally unaware that the person has been having a problem until they come in for their next visit. The time to deal with this is right away so call that number the office gives you to reach a provider.
