More Info on Reactions to Aciphex
Other Possible Aciphex Side EffectsAfter medications are approved and are in use by the general public, healthcare providers may voluntarily report side effects. This information may point to possible side effects that were not seen in clinical trials. However, it is very difficult (or impossible) to tell how frequently such side effects occur or even if they are actual side effects, since they are reported voluntarily (and since the "side effects" could be coincidental). These reported side effects are known as "postmarketing experience."
Possible side effects of Aciphex reported in postmarketing experience include but are not limited to:
- A coma
- Yellow skin (jaundice)
- Sudden death
- Increased TSH (found using a blood test), indicating possible hypothyroidism
- Low white blood cells
- Low blood platelets
- Serious skin rashes
- Allergic reactions, including life-threatening reactions
- Broken bones (some studies suggest this or other similar medications may increase the risk of bone fractures)
- Low blood magnesium (hypomagnesemia).
It is possible that you may experience some or none of these Aciphex side effects. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be an Aciphex side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
