"My challenge is knowing drug toxicity when it presents itself. Whenever a patient experiences a challenge in mood, sleep, eating or health status, it's important to at least question the medications. Sometimes it is difficult for the health care team to discover medication-related problems during an average office visit, so it is critical for patients to feel free to speak up when they don't feel right. Patient care must include a regular and close review of medications, as it is sometimes the medication given to cure that causes the harm. "
