Medication Makes Me Feel Worse

October 30, 2019

Theresa and America have a conversation about how medications work and how sometimes when you’re prescribed a medication the side effects could make you feel worse than before. When first taking a new medication sometimes the side effects don’t pop up right away, you have to give it some time to reach a therapeutic level. You do what’s best for you, you know your body better than anyone so keep track of any time you feel something out of the ordinary and tell your doctor.
