Q. Let me know, will there be any side effect by starting new medication. Medication is needed for my friend who is affected by bipolar disorder. We are also searching for some medication guidelines. Let me know, will there be any side effect by starting new medication.

A. There are possible side effects to all medications. Whenever anyone starts a new medication it is important to watch closely for side effects. Some side effects are mild and can be lived with. The pharmacy should provide a printout about the new medications and their possible side effects. It will also have instruction on what to do in the event the patient experiences some of the more serious side effects. Make sure your friend reads the printout, however most people only experience the minor side effects and find that they can live with them.
Good luck with the new meds, I hope your friend is feeling better very soon!
