We are sorry to hear that you have been experiencing side effects from your new medication. If you are concerned about these side effects, we would recommend contacting the prescribing doctor to discuss with them your experiences. If you feel your GP won’t take your concerns seriously, perhaps speaking to another doctor for a second opinion will provide a more comprehensive idea of what your treatment options are.
In addition, you can also call your local health direct service (also called nurse on call) for 24/7 medical advice and support or present to your local emergency department if you feel unwell. They are available on 1800 022 222 or via their website https://www.healthdirect.gov.au/
