Side Effects of Carbinoxamine

Although most people taking carbinoxamine do not experience any problems, side effects are possible. Some of the most common side effects that have been seen with this medication include drowsiness, dizziness, and indigestion or heartburn. Certain side effects of carbinoxamine (while typically rare) are potentially serious and require immediate medical attention, such as double vision, difficulty passing urine, or a rapid heart rate.

As with any medicine, carbinoxamine maleate (Palgic®) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the medication will have problems. In fact, some people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
