Ximino Side Effects

It is important to know that if you are taking Ximino, you should seek medical attention if you develop complications like severe diarrhea, blurred vision, or unusual headaches. Fortunately, serious reactions are not very common, and most people tolerate this medicine well. Some of the most commonly reported side effects of Ximino include fatigue, dizziness, and itching.

An Introduction to Ximino Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Ximino™ (minocycline hydrochloride) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
 
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Ximino. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
 

Common Side Effects of Ximino

Minocycline, the active ingredient in Ximino, has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people taking minocycline were documented and then compared to the side effects that occurred in a similar group of people taking a placebo (a "sugar pill" that does not contain any active ingredients).
 
In these studies, the most commonly reported minocycline side effects included:
 
  • Fatigue -- in up to 9 percent of people
  • Dizziness -- up to 9 percent
  • Itching -- up to 5 percent
  • A general ill feeling -- up to 4 percent
  • Drowsiness -- up to 2 percent
  • Hives -- up to 2 percent
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus) -- up to 2 percent
  • Joint pain -- up to 1 percent.
