Medications & daily exercise: Potential adverse reactions

Author(s): Lydia L. Kim, Digital Content Editor

One of the most important care suggestions nurses and other healthcare providers may have for their patients is to exercise more. A recent article from Healthline offers insight into some common interactions particular medications may have with a patient’s exercise routine.

The Healthline article covers several medications and types of medication that may have adverse reactions during and after a workout routine.

For example, some selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors for depression may result in drowsiness, dry mouth, or excessive sweating after working out. Laxatives also can lead to stomach pain or cramping post workout.

As part of American Nurse Today’s mission to help nurses and healthcare providers raise their level of care for patients, the journal team encourages you to read more about this topic through Healthline’s article.
