A.

It’s possible that you are not taking the correct dosage of medication or you need an additional medication or another medication altogether. You should report this information to your prescribing physician as soon as possible. He or she can make adjustments to your medicine.

It’s relatively common for people to need adjustments to their medications. What’s most important is that you provide detailed feedback to your prescribing physician about these problems so they can be corrected. Without that information, he or she won’t know anything is wrong or that adjustments are needed. I hope this helps. Please take care.
