DANGERS OF SIDE EFFECTS USED AS MAIN EFFECTS
There are many medications and products out there that are marketed to deal with a certain condition. However, that’s not really their main effect but their side effects. And sometimes, it can be dangerous to interchange these. There can be serious consequences.
PRESS RELEASE – In the medical world, the proper use of words should be followed always because a simple mistake could be detrimental to a patient’s health.
A good example are the words “side effect” and “main effect”. These, are more often than not, interchanged or used instead of the other because sometimes, the side effect can really be significant. However, doing so is wrong and also dangerous to the people’s health. But making
A side effect of any substance pertains to the result beyond the main or primary action that is intended by the physician giving drug prescription. The doctor, likewise, foresees this extra consequence but may proceed with the prescription after weighing the pros and cons.
For instance, the patient might not be conscious of the side effect of unwanted hair growth elsewhere on the body while using vasodilator drug called Minoxidil that is used to treat hypertension. The physician is also very well aware about it, as well as other implications, such as burning or irritation of the eye, itching, and redness or irritation at the treated area. More often than not, doctors suggest that patients should ignore the side effects unless serious and often alert the sick persons about their likelihood.
But not all the side effects are boon. They can be bane, too, hence, they are often used as a therapeutic benefit in the pharmaceutical industry. Like the Minoxidil which, initially was developed to treat high blood pressure. People taking it reported an unusual side effect: Hair began to grow on various parts of their bodies. In this case, the downside of the drug is controlled and employed for a beneficial and therapeutic effect judiciously. It is noted that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved prescription of two percent (2%) Minoxidil topical solution for hair loss in men in 1988 and for women in 1992.
An adverse effect, on the other hand, is identified as an outcome wherein the reaction occurs over and beyond the main and wanted action of a medicine. Both the physician and the patient don’t know about it as a consequence of taking such treatment. It can happen simply due to incorrect dosage. Undesirably, this is very harmful as it can exacerbate the prognosis of the disease. Occasionally, if the adverse effect is too serious, there might be a need for hospitalization.
Just like the Sildenafil Citrate— a medication used to treat erectile dysfunction and pulmonary arterial hypertension. Its most common adverse reactions (≥ 2%) include headache, flushing, dyspepsia, abnormal vision, nasal congestion, back pain, myalgia, nausea, dizziness and rash. Patients should seek emergency treatment if an erection lasts over four hours. Patients should stop Sildenafil Citrate and seek medical care if a sudden decrease or loss of hearing and also that of vision in one or both eyes.
Since side effects paired with adverse effects can be fatal and need to be reversed or given antidote immediately, a very extra cautious effort not to interchange them with the main effects in the prescription process must be always observed. After all, it’s the lives of patients at stake here.
It’s ironic to note that people who seek treatments for their ailments or to prolong their lives become sicker and eventually pass away simply because of medical error.
