Reactions to Amnesteem You Might Experience
Other Possible Side EffectsFor most medications, especially relatively new ones, the prescribing information provides a detailed description of the side effects that occurred during clinical trials, along with the exact percentage of people who developed these problems. However, the prescribing information for Amnesteem does not provide any percentages, and it is difficult to know which side effects are common and which are rare.
Based on this limited information, some of the bothersome (but not usually dangerous) side effects that can occur with Amnesteem include:
- Water retention
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Weight loss
- Bleeding gums
- Irritation of the esophagus
- Back pain, muscle pain, or joint pain
- Menstrual changes
- Voice changes
- Hair loss
- Undesired hair growth (such as body or facial hair growth)
- Dry lips, mouth, nose, and skin
- Sensitivity to the sun
- Peeling of the hands or feet
- Lightening or darkening of the skin
- Poor night vision
- Changes in color vision.
Final ThoughtsYou may experience some or none of the Amnesteem side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking Amnesteem or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to the medication, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
