Other Possible Side Effects of Diclegis

Some side effects were reported to occur in the general population after the drug was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This is known as postmarketing experience. Because these potential side effects were not actually reported in clinical studies, it can be difficult to know for certain whether they are actually caused by Diclegis or by something else.
Some of the reported postmarketing side effects of Diclegis include:
  • Shortness of breath
  • An irregular, rapid, or forceful heartbeat
  • A spinning sensation (vertigo)
  • Vision problems, including blurred vision
  • Abdominal distension (swelling of the stomach)
  • Abdominal (stomach) pain
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Chest discomfort
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • A general feeling of discomfort
  • Allergic-type reactions
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Sensations of tingling, burning, pricking, or numbness of the skin
  • Restlessness
  • Anxiety
  • Feeling disoriented
  • Insomnia
  • Nightmares
  • An inability to completely empty the bladder
  • Painful urination
  • Increased sweating
  • Itching
  • Rash.

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any adverse reactions while using the drug or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of Diclegis, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
