Hye. Thankyou for your query. When you take any medication it's your responsibility to mention any allergies or in tolerances you suffer from and medications that you may be taking. This helps the doctor guide you regarding the reaction of the medication with any other you may be taking. Also, it's the responsibility of the doctor to specify in case there is any side effects to look for in case of all medications so that you are alert to watch out for any.
