Zetia Side Effects

Rare Zetia Side Effects

Rare Zetia side effects occur in less than 1 percent of people taking the drug. Because these side effects are so uncommon, it is difficult to tell whether they are actually caused by the medication itself or something else.
 
Some of these rare side effects include but are not limited to:
 
  • Allergic reactions
  • Muscle weakness
  • Serious breakdown of muscle, known as rhabdomyolysis (see Zetia and Muscle Pain)
  • Gallstones.
     

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of these side effects of Zetia. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand whether you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. You may also experience side effects that are not listed in this article. Make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking this medication, as well as anything that "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
