Medications are important to minor and major health conditions. They can help cure a cold and also help with cancer symptoms. Regardless of the condition, the medication should be taken at the dose that the doctor advises. If not, there could be serious consequences because it can harm the body.

One reason that it is harmful is that it can heighten the side effects. Some of those side effects can include internal bleeding, depression of the respiratory system, damage to the kidney or liver, or a coma. Another serious consequence of taking heavy doses of medications is an accidental overdone, leading to death.

Heavy dose of most medications are harmful to the body. Heavy dose, which can also be referred to as over dose of medication is when a person takes more than the medically recommended dose of medication(s).
Taking heavy dose of medication will make the effects of the medication more pronounced. However, the side effects will be heightened. Taking heavy dose can cause severe and life threatening symptoms.

Most common side effects are: increase, decrease or absence of vital sign values, internal bleeding, drowsiness, respiratory depression, liver and kidney damage, coma and many other severe conditions. It can also lead to death.

Avoid heavy dose of medications, always stick to the dose given to you by your health care provider.
