How to create awareness on the side effects of medicines
Debates should be initiated whether to mandate all the doctors in the country to also inform the patients about the side effects of medicines prescribed. Presently, this is not happening properly. On a rough reckoning, a good percentage of all the medicines available in the drug stores in the country including those medicines prescribed, do have side effects after consumption by any patient.

Some side effects of different intake of medicines include depression of mind for those who take sleeping pills, change in mood swings, digestive system getting affected; getting rashes on skins, frequent falling of hair, change in behavior pattern and so on.

If doctors send enough caution to the patients on such side effects including remedies, patients can be alert while taking medicines and can consciously try out for something new to negate the side effects including following the remedial advice offered by the doctor.

Debate should also include the issue of mandating every drug manufacturer to clearly issue the warning of side effects by taking their medicines. Different drug manufactures do carry out research activities for bettering their drugs performance and also for coming out with new drugs for different ailments. They should also be encouraged to properly come out with details with regard to the side effects and issue the same as a warning while selling their products.

Some patients do go in for different treatments like Ayurveda and homeopathy treatments where the side effects are not all felt on a big scale.

Therefore, the aspect of side effects by taking different medicines should get prominence amongst the experts for debating this issue thoroughly and for mandating the doctors? community to clearly inform each patient on this side effect issue and how to overcome this.
