We use medicines to make our children better, but sometimes they have other effects that we don’t want (side-effects).
Rare but serious side effects
Seek medical attention immediately if your child has any of these side effects
Common side effects
If your child have problems with these less serious side effects, talk with your doctor/ pharmacist
There may, sometimes, be other side-effects that are not listed above. If you notice anything unusual and are concerned, please contact your doctor or pharmacist.
Your doctor will instruct you on how much and how often your child should take the medicine. Do not take more of the medicine or take it more often than what the doctor tells your child to. Most medicine can be taken with or without food. Give the medicine at the same time each day.
The medicine starts to work straight away. However, because the dose is usually increased gradually, it may take some weeks before the full effect can be seen.
Do not stop taking the medicine without first checking with the doctor.
If your child miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with the regular dosing schedule. Do not double the dose to make up for the missed dose.
