As with any medicine, there are possible side effects with Altoprev; but not everyone who takes the medication will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it well. When side effects occur, in most cases they are minor, meaning they require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider. If side effects do occur, most people do not need to stop their medicine.
The most common side effects thought to be related to Altoprev are:
- Joint pain (see Altoprev and Joint Pain)
- Muscle pain, known medically as myalgia (see Altoprev and Muscle Pain)
- Inflammation of the sinuses (sinusitis)
Keep in mind that if you experience unexplained muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness -- especially if they occur with a fever or you feel ill -- it is important to contact your healthcare provider immediately. This could be a sign of a serious, life-threatening muscle problem.
