Hello, Froggy63! How are you?

They treat the same conditions, but are different medications that work differently. It is common for several to be prescribed to help get a condition under control.

The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, weight changes, headache and dry mouth.

Is there anything else I can help with?
