WHEN is the proper time to contact a malpractice attorney?

I was prescribed a drug to take to lower cholesteral. NO adverse side effects were mentioned when questioning the MD about them. After months on the drug partial paralysis of my toes and fingertips ensued. I went to the same MD with this problem. NO mention was made that it might be the drug he prescribed. I went back after it became more severe. STILL no hint that it might be this drug.I found out on my own that this drug causes nerve damage and perepheral neuropathy in 2% of people who take it. I have discontinued the drug. When do I contact an attorney? Only after I see that my paralysis does not improve or now?
