Drugs Home > Sinecatechins Side Effects
Clinical studies have shown that side effects are possible with sinecatechins. Some of the most common reactions include skin reactions, such as pain, burning, and itching. There are also potentially serious problems, such as severe skin reactions and swelling of the throat, that should be reported to your healthcare provider right away.
As with any medicine, sinecatechins (Veregen®) may cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will experience problems. 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 are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
Although many people using this product will develop some sort of skin reaction, problems like these tend to be minor and easy to treat.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with sinecatechins. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
