Handling the side affects of a drug

When Illinois residents begin taking medication, they expect the medicine will help their health improve. Sometimes, though, people may experience side effects that are dangerous for their health. When people find themselves in this situation, it is important for them to know what they should do.

Medication side effects can come in a variety of forms. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says that people might experience side effects when they change their daily dose of a medicine or when they begin using a new drug. Some people may also experience reactions when they stop taking a medication. While some side effects may be slight issues, such as drowsiness, a runny nose or dry mouth, others may be more dangerous. A reaction is usually considered to be serious if it causes people to be hospitalized or results in a disability. Sometimes when these side effects are hazardous, it is because someone has an unexpected reaction to a medication. This reaction may occur because a person has a certain allergy or takes other medications that may not mix well with the new drug. 

Before people begin taking a medication, it is a good idea for them to speak with their doctor. According to Very Well Health, people should usually ask what kind of side effects they may be most likely to experience and what they can do to prevent these reactions. Additionally, it is important for people to notify their physician when they are worried about a side effect. This allows doctors to order a test to make sure a person does not develop a serious health problem.

Although some people may want to stop taking their medicine as soon as they think there is a problem, it is a good idea to speak to a doctor first. A physician can typically provide guidance for navigating these side effects and determine if patients need a different dose or a new medication.

  3. "Very satisfied"

    Mark [Mathys] is very professional. He responds almost immediately, via email, to any question, comment or concern I have and if he is not able to respond right away, he will let me know. I have been very satisfied with Mark so far and I am happy to be his client.
    -Jennifer

  4. "Easy to talk to"

    Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid were very professional and easy to talk to. Prior to working with them, my wife and I had no real experience with the legal system beyond a house closing, yet Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid explained the whole process to us very well. I knew that whenever I had a concern about our case or the legal system in general I could call their office or send an email and receive answers the same day... -Larry

  5. "Provided very wise advice"

    I've dealt with attorneys on a variety of issues, almost all of them since leaving college and entering the workplace. Mr. Mathys was the first attorney I had any real experience with, and I was impressed then and remain so. He provided very wise advice and always kept me informed. In the end, he delivered a favorable result. I recommend him highly.
    - Tyler D.

  6. "In-depth knowledge of the law"

    Mark [Schneid] is an excellent and skilled attorney and demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the law when he helped settle my dog bite lawsuit resulting from a traumatic incident. He explained what was needed of me and how I should handle the situation in a professional manner.
    - Karen K.

  7. "They went to bat for me"

    Not long ago I was involved in a car accident where I was hit by a gravel truck at an intersection. After I called Mathys & Schneid, even though I didn't have a very large case, they made me feel like I was one of their most important cases. They went to bat for me with the trucking company's insurance and got me a settlement. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends. -Dan H.
