Alsuma Side Effects

Side Effects to Report

Some side effects of Alsuma are potentially serious and should be reported immediately to your healthcare provider. These include but are not limited to:
 
  • Severe chest pain or tightness (see Alsuma and Heart Problems)
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sudden, severe abdominal (stomach) pain
  • Bloody diarrhea
  • Changes in vision, including loss of vision
  • Seizures
  • Dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting
  • Signs of an allergic reaction, such as:
 
    • Unexplained skin rashes
    • Itching
    • Hives
    • Wheezing or shortness of breath
    • Unexplained swelling.
 
Combining Alsuma with certain antidepressants or other serotonergic medications can increase your risk for a group of dangerous symptoms called serotonin syndrome (see Alsuma Drug Interactions for more information). Contact your healthcare provider immediately if you experience any of the following:
 
  • Confusion
  • Seeing or hearing things that are not really there (hallucinations)
  • Fast heartbeat (tachycardia)
  • Fainting
  • Fever
  • Sweating
  • Muscle spasms
  • Difficulty walking
  • Diarrhea.
 

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the Alsuma 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 using Alsuma 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.
