Along with its needed effects, a medicine may cause some unwanted effects. Although not all of these side effects may occur, if they do occur they may need medical attention.
Check with your doctor as soon as possible if any of the following side effects occur:
- Increase in runny or stuffy nose
Symptoms of too much medicine being absorbed into the body
- Blurred vision
- Fast, irregular, or pounding heartbeat
- Headache, dizziness, drowsiness, or lightheadedness
- High blood pressure
- Trouble in sleeping
The above side effects are more likely to occur in children because there is a greater chance in children that too much of this medicine may be absorbed into the body.
Some side effects may occur that usually do not need medical attention. These side effects may go away during treatment as your body adjusts to the medicine. Also, your health care professional may be able to tell you about ways to prevent or reduce some of these side effects. Check with your health care professional if any of the following side effects continue or are bothersome or if you have any questions about them:
- Burning, dryness, or stinging inside of nose
- Increase in nasal discharge
Other side effects not listed may also occur in some patients. If you notice any other effects, check with your healthcare professional.
Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.
