TOPIC: Side Effects of Meditation

Side Effects of Meditation 1 week 5 days ago #232313

Are the side effects of medication taken into account by assessors when considering limitations?

For example, to name just two side effects of Parkinson’s Disease meds’, my partner suffers with nausea and extreme somnolence. These do impair his functioning such that he cannot undertake activities reliably or safely.

It is a Catch 22. If doesn’t take enough meds his symptoms are severe, but in taking meds, the side effects are severe.

Yes, the side-effects of medication should be taken into account when you are assessed providing you normally take them.
