How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Hoarseness of voice and Voice change
    Try resting your voice and avoid talking too loudly or for too long. Drinking plenty of fluids, gargling with salt water and sucking on lozenges help to keep your throat moist and comfortable. Steam inhalation and using an air humidifier may also help. Avoid alcohol and smoking, as they dry your throat and irritate your vocal chord, aggravating your condition.
  • Coping with Hair loss
    Use gentle hair products such as baby shampoo. Use a soft brush and comb gently. Avoid using hairdryers, curling tongs or hair straighteners and pat your hair dry after washing. Do not color your hair. Protect your scalp by covering your head in the sun. It is necessary to not take the stress and eat a balanced, nutritious diet as it is vital for the health of your hair.
  • Coping with Weight gain
    Try to eat a healthy balanced diet without increasing your portion sizes. Avoid processed meat or poultry and seafood. Eat small, frequent meals and eat slowly. Do not snack on foods that contain a lot of calories such as crisps, cakes, biscuits and sweets. If you feel hungry between meals, eat fruits and vegetables which have low calories. Avoid reaching for a sugary drink if you feel stressed. Fasting once a week can be an effective way to lose weight. Make sure you get enough sleep. With proper diet and lifestyle changes, you might not gain any weight or may gain only a small amount. Even then if it bothers you, ask your doctor if there are any alternative medicines that do not have this side effect.
  • Coping with Acne
    Do not wash affected areas more than twice a day. Use a mild soap or cleanser and do not scrub the affected area. Avoid using too much make-up and excessive sun exposure. Try to eat a healthy balanced diet and avoid oily or spicy food. Do not try to squeeze spots and refrain from touching or picking the affected areas as it can trigger more acne, leading to infection or scarring. Regularly wash pillowcases, sheets and clothes that come in contact with acne. Talk to your doctor if your acne has not improved. They will assess your acne and suggest next steps for treatment.
  • Coping with Sore throat
    Try gargling with warm salt water as it can help soothe a scratchy throat and relieve the discomfort. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Consider lozenges or hard candy. Avoid caffeine and alcohol, as they can dry out your throat and aggravate the symptoms. Also, avoid smoking or smoky places. Warm tea that is sweetened with honey can also soothe your irritated throat. Get plenty of rest and consider using a humidifier if the air in your home is dry. If it does not get better or get worse, talk to your doctor for advice.
