Thinking clearly about your medicines: managing side effects (Sep 2014)

Medicines can bring many benefits but they can also have side effects that are not intended or desired. Side effects can occur when taking a single medicine or because a number of medicines are taken at the same time. As we get older we can become more sensitive to medicines.
