Information and Data Report Service
A drug interaction occurs when the effect of a particular drug is altered when it is taken with another drug, or with food. Side effects are usually regarded as undesirable secondary conditions that occur in addition to the desired therapeutic effect of a drug.
Side effects vary for each individual depending on the person's disease state, age, weight, gender, ethnicity and general health. A side effect can occur when commencing, decreasing/increasing dosages, or ending a treatment regime. It may also lead to non-compliance with prescribed treatment.When severe, dosage may be adjusted or a second medication may be prescribed. Lifestyle or dietary changes may also help to minimize side effects.
