Medication side effect summaries
Below are the links to handouts I give to patients explaining common and serious side effects of medications. The lists are intentionally short and manageable. I have weeded out uncommon and trivial side effects because the comprehensive lists are overwhelming, over-inclusive, and anxiety provoking. Some medications are listed by their class (e.g. SSRI or stimulants) or by their generic names. If you do not know the generic name, a quick Google search of the brand name should reveal the generic name.
