Medicine Side Effects and What You Can Do About It


If you are caring for an aging parent, chances are they also need to be taking medications. Whether it is for their health condition, pain, or anything related to an accident, medicines can be a normal consumption, especially for our senior population.

While medicines address a specific ailment to improve the patient’s condition, other effects are not intended. Some of these side effects can be difficult to deal with while others may not necessarily cause any issue.

As part of our holistic home healthcare in California, knowing these common side effects can be a huge help later on for the patient and the whole family to be equipped and ready to handle the situation.

  • Muscle weakness and/or muscle pain
    Some seniors taking a class of drug called statin experience weakness or pain in their muscles. Statins are used to treat high cholesterol. The patient may choose a lower dose of the medicine or talk with their doctor on recommended supplements to curb the effect.
  • Nausea and dizziness
    Medicines in the class of anticholinergics treat nerve pain or depression can cause dizziness, balance issues, and nausea. The patient may discuss with their doctor other treatment options or consider safety protocols as part of their daily routine, particularly after they take their medication.
