Triglide Side Effects

Common Triglide Side Effects

Triglide has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, side effects are always documented and compared to side effects that occur in a similar group of people not taking the medicine. The most common side effects of Triglide, occurring in more than 2 percent of the people taking the medicine, include:
 
  • Chest congestion or difficulty breathing -- up to 6.2 percent
  • Abdominal pain (or stomach pain) -- up to 4.6 percent
  • Back pain -- up to 3.4 percent
  • Headache -- up to 3.2 percent
  • Runny nose -- up to 2.3 percent
  • Diarrhea or constipation -- up to 2.3 percent
  • Nausea -- up to 2.3 percent
  • Body weakness -- up to 2.1 percent
  • Flu-like symptoms -- up to 2.1 percent.
     
Triglide can also cause an elevation in liver enzymes. In the clinical trials, this was the most common reason why people stopped taking Triglide. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your liver enzymes during your treatment and stop your medication if they become too high (see Triglide and Liver Problems).
