Should the patient stop using the medicine when they see the side effects?

It is obviously not possible to stop the treatment when we see side effects of the medicines. Because this might lead the disease symptoms to relapse intensely; however, the physicians monitoring the patient might change the dose of the medicines or add some other medicines that would help diminish the side effects to the treatment of the patients.

But if the patient feels as if they are stuck in between the medical treatment and its side effects, experience intense side effects or the disease does not respond to the treatment as we thought it would, it is possible for us to remedy the symptoms and bring the patient back to the first years of the diagnosis with some surgical interventions.
