Yes, it's somewhat nebulous. Though I feel that a broad working definition of "unwanted or unintended effects". The most common thing I see cited in the literature is anxiety, though as I mentioned earlier full-blown psychosis has been documented to occur. I think it's safe to say that a psychotic episode is quite unlike the "calming, peaceful, balancing" effects of meditation that are so often touted as universal benefits.
