Medicines are there to help patients. They can be used in a wide array of health conditions, ranging from a headache to cancer. The one thing that patients should be aware of before taking medication is that there are side effects that come with it.

Sometimes those side effects can be worst than the condition they are already suffering from. These effects can be mild, moderate, or severe. They can range from a headache, irritation of the skin, to more severe effects like depression or death. Before choosing medication, the patient should consult their doctor and/or research the side effects.
