What are the side-effects of prescription meds?

Aaron Dahmen

A new report says doctors and pharmacists are not telling patients about side-effects of prescribed medicines often enough.

As Aaron Dahmen reports, this is despite New Zealand Medical and Pharmacy Councils stating that patients should be fully informed before starting treatment.

The story was part of a programme broadcast on Plains 96.9 FM, Canterbury's community access radio station.
