Warning about medication side effects

If a patient is warned about potential side effects of a drug, he can work with his physician efficiently to find a solution to the problems caused by the side effects. If he is not warned, he may not realize that the new problem is due to a new drug prescription. When the prescription must be taken over a longer period of time, as for depression, its side effects, such as loss of sexual desire, can cause a host of new problems if no warning is given.
