Premature Intervention

Clinicians can often inadvertently exacerbate problems with side effects by doing multiple dose adjustments. For a medication that is going to be taken for a relatively long period of time, it is important to determine what the side effect burden will be at steady state. Addressing and attempting to intervene with side effect problems before that occurs can cause the problem that the clinician is trying to solve.
