Metozolv ODT Side Effects
In clinical studies, commonly reported side effects of Metozolv ODT included headache, dizziness, and fatigue. These problems are generally mild and easily treated -- if they even occur at all. However, some reactions to Metozolv ODT are potentially serious, even life-threatening, and require prompt medical attention. These include vision changes, wheezing, seizures, and a rapid heart rate.
An Introduction to Metozolv ODT Side EffectsAs with any medicine, side effects are possible with Metozolv™ ODT (orally disintegrating metoclopramide). However, not everyone who takes 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 Metozolv ODT. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
Common Side Effects Seen With Metozolv ODTMetozolv ODT has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occur in a group of people taking the drug were documented and compared to those that occurred in another group of people taking regular (not orally disintegrating) metoclopramide tablets. This way, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the regular tablets.
In these studies, the most common Metozolv ODT side effects included:
- Headache -- in up to 5.2 percent of people
- Nausea -- up to 4.2 percent
- Vomiting -- up to 2.1 percent
- Fatigue -- up to 2.1 percent
- Drowsiness -- up to 2.1 percent
- Dizziness -- up to 1 percent.
