Medication side effects

Side effects can range from subtle to a serious reaction. If you are concerned about a side effect seek medical advice straight away. We are happy to help with advice and guidance and depending on the nature of your symptoms you may speak to a nurse, pharmacist or GP. Submit an eConsult to trigger an appointment with one of our clinicians to discuss your symptoms further. Usually an alternative treatment can be recommended quite easily.

Obviously if you have a more serious reaction, particularly anything affecting your airway (lip, tongue swelling or wheezing/breathing issues) you should call 999 straight away. Out of hours 111 can provide advice about how to manage side effects and if it can wait will usually advise you to contact us in the morning.
