One looks not only ( as discussed in my response to your last posting ) at possible side-effects of meds ( including anything you might take over-the-counter and without prescription, but also to the pattern of timing. After starting a drug, or increasing the dosage, it can take a week or two to reach substantially higher blood levels, which might cause a side-effects not seen at lower blood levels.
