Side Effects of Prescription Medications Taken By Our Clients

Almost all of disabled persons are prescribed multiple medications (or as many as they can afford to take). The unfortunate downside of taking medications is the many side effects caused by these drugs, many of which are disabling themselves. In preparing your disability case, you need to inform your treatment providers concerning the side effects caused by your medications.

Below we have assembled a partial list of medications taken by the many clients we have assisted in addition to a list of possible side effects of which you should be aware.
