Aclidinium Side Effects
Common Side EffectsAclidinium has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people using the drug were documented and compared to those that occurred in another group who used a placebo (a similar product that does not contain any active ingredients). As a result, it was possible to see what side effects occurred, how often they appeared, and how they compared to the group given the placebo.
In these studies, the most common aclidinium side effects included:
- Headache -- in up to 6.6 percent of people
- Common cold symptoms -- up to 5.5 percent
- Cough -- up to 3 percent
- Diarrhea -- up to 2.7 percent.
Other common reactions, occurring in 1 percent to 1.7 percent of people, included:
- Sinus infection
- Stuffy, runny, or itchy nose (rhinitis)
Final ThoughtsYou may experience some or none of the aclidinium 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 side effects while using aclidinium or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to the medication, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
