Edecrin Side Effects
Loss of appetite, trouble swallowing, and fatigue are some Edecrin side effects that have been reported in clinical studies. In most cases, side effects are minor and either require no treatment or can be treated easily. It is, however, possible to develop serious side effects of Edecrin that should be reported to a healthcare provider immediately, such as dehydration, high or low blood sugar, and hearing problems.
As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Edecrin® (ethacrynic acid). However, not everyone who takes the medication will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. When side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can be easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, possible side effects with Edecrin. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Edecrin side effects with you.)
Edecrin has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials, in which a group of people taking the drug have side effects documented and compared to another group not taking the medicine. This way, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.
Some of the reported Edecrin side effects include:
- Loss of appetite
- General ill feeling (malaise)
- Abdominal pain (stomach pain)
- Trouble swallowing
- Blurred vision
