Side Effects of Ciclesonide

Certain side effects of ciclesonide (while occurring infrequently) are potentially serious and should be reported to a healthcare provider immediately, including frequent infections or infections that do not go away, frequent and severe nosebleeds, or wheezing. However, side effects are usually minor and do not require medical attention. Some of the more common ciclesonide side effects include headaches, throat pain, and nosebleeds.

Side Effects of Ciclesonide: An Introduction

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with ciclesonide (Omnaris®, Zetonna™). However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most 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.
 
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with ciclesonide. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of ciclesonide side effects with you.)
