Education before Participation: What are side effects and adverse reactions?

Side effects are any undesired actions or effects of drug or treatment. Negative or adverse effects may include headache, nausea, hair loss, skin irritation, or other physical problems. Experimental treatments must be evaluated for both immediate and long-term side effects.

Have you ever experienced any side effects or adverse reactions while in a clinical trial? What kind of support did you receive?
