Side Effects of Taking Multiple Medications

Side Effects of Taking Multiple Medications

“Side effects” is usually a term associated with medicines. It refers to the secondary effect caused by a medicine. These effects are typically undesirable, so we classify them as a disadvantage of using such medication.

Since we have been a pharmacy, MaxCare Pharmacy has encountered a fair share of these side effects. One topic we want to talk about regarding medication is taking multiple medications.

The following are the reasons why people find multiple medications stressful:

Being too dependent
Having a lot of medications will make the patient too dependent on these pills. The patient will no longer think of ways on what he or she can do but simply rely on these medications. No longer will they even think of exercise and proper diet.

Since taking medications is easier to do, they would rather drink that pill even if there are more ways to combat their condition.

Feeling the nihilism grow
If you remove all of our goals, dreams and aspirations in life, you can say that we all live just to die. This is a nihilistic view. We will not argue about this because there is a sense of truth. But it is just so sad.

Having to take more medications makes the patient think that he or she will simply have to increase the number of medications in the future. This will remind the poor fellow that he or she has a lot of health conditions which will only make the patient depressed.

Forgetting to take them
We are all just average people and may forget things from time to time. This forgetfulness does not exempt the part where we have to take medications. In fact, many patients forget their medications, and when they do so, they have no idea what to do.

To prevent these episodes from happening, you need to keep up with your issues of forgetfulness. But if it turns out that you cannot avoid forgetting, you can always ask the help of others.

Embracing the tiresome routine
We all admit that even taking one pill is tiresome enough. How much more if a patient needs to take at least 5 medicines a day? Yes, that life indeed sucks. But do you know what else sucks? It is suffering from the condition itself.

Every time a person needs to take his or her medication, they would suffer from a side effect or two. Add this up with the hassle of taking multiple medications and medicine time would be stressful.
