These are unwanted effects that you consider are linked to taking a medicine. Side effects also include any effects from: misuse, abuse, an error in the way the medicine has been given or overdose (taking too much medicine). Reports can be made for any medicine (including specials and unlicensed products), any vaccine, herbal product, and complimentary remedies such as homeopathic remedies, blood factors (. factors I to XIII) and immunuloglobulins (. anti-D (RHO) immunoglobulin). You can even report suspected side effects from a drug you think might be happening as a result of interactions with food and drink.
Tell your doctor about any other medical conditions you may have, especially heart disease, diabetes, blood clotting problems, and adrenal or pituitary gland problems. The dose of other drugs you may be taking to control these conditions may have to be changed while you are taking SYNTHROID. If you have diabetes, check your blood sugar levels and/or the glucose in your urine, as ordered by your doctor, and immediately tell your doctor if there are any changes. If you are taking blood thinners, your blood clotting status should be checked often.
“Attention-deficit drugs increase concentration in the short term, which is why they work so well for college students cramming for exams. But when given to children over long periods of time, they neither improve school achievement nor reduce behavior problems. The drugs can also have serious side effects... Many parents who take their children off the drugs find that behavior worsens, which most likely confirms their belief that the drugs work. But the behavior worsens because the children's bodies have become adapted [because the drugs are habit-forming] to the drug. Adults may have similar reactions if they suddenly cut back on coffee, or stop smoking.”
