What are the side effects?

The most common side effects include gastrointestinal related symptoms such as abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. These side effects may be more common after initiation (especially if using a higher dose than prescribed) and during dose escalation.

Extreme sensitivity reactions such as rash, trouble breathing, swelling of the mouth, face, or throat should be reported to your pharmacist and physician. Low blood sugar can occur and is marked by signs of dizziness, headache, feeling sleepy or weak, shaking, fast heartbeat, confusion, hunger, change in eyesight, or sweating. Discontinue use of the medication should these reactions occur.

Drug interactions, contraindications and more side effects are listed on our complimentary patient information guide that we provide to you when we first dispense your medication.
