Prepopik Side Effects

Serious Side Effects

Some side effects of Prepopik are potentially serious and should be reported immediately to your healthcare provider. These include but are not limited to:
 
  • Seizures
  • Signs of an allergic reaction, such as:
 
    • An unexplained rash
    • Hives
    • Itching
    • Unexplained swelling, especially of the mouth, lips, or throat
    • Wheezing
    • Difficulty breathing or swallowing
 
  • Unexplained fever and chills
  • Low blood pressure (hypotension)
  • An irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia)
  • Signs of dehydration, such as:
 
    • Thirst
    • Less frequent urination
    • Dry skin
    • Fatigue
    • Lightheadedness
    • Dark-colored urine.
 
Most of the serious problems with Prepopik are related to dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. You are at a higher risk for these problems if you have heart or kidney disease, if you fail to consume enough liquids while using Prepopik, or if you are taking certain other medications (see Prepopik Drug Interactions).
 

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the 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 taking Prepopik 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.
