Altoprev Side Effects: SummaryIt is possible that you may experience some or none of these Altoprev 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 you healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be an Altoprev side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
