8. How can I expect to feel on this regimen?
Don't be surprised if your clinician only seems to talk about the likeliest medication side effects instead of the full range of possible ones. Maybe she or he fears that you are impressionable and talking about them will scare you off, or will make you think you have them when you actually don't.
But knowing whether a symptom you get might be drug-related is a big deal. That way, you'll know right away whether you should give your clinic a call and see what your clinician thinks about it.
So ask your doctor to give you the gamut of side effects -- but pay attention to what percentage of people get each one so you know how likely it might be for you. Remember: Even if the percentage is as high as 20 percent, that means 80 percent don't get it.
