Common Side Effects

Aztreonam for inhalation solution has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people using the drug were carefully documented and compared to those that occurred in a similar group of people using a placebo (an inhalation with no active ingredients). As a result, it was possible to see what side effects occurred, how often they appeared, and how they compared to the placebo.
 
In clinical studies, the most common aztreonam for inhalation solution side effects included:
 
  • Cough -- in up to 54 percent of people
  • Stuffy nose (nasal congestion) -- up to 16 percent
  • Wheezing -- up to 16 percent
  • Fever -- up to 13 percent
  • Sore throat -- up to 12 percent
  • Chest discomfort -- up to 8 percent
  • Abdominal (stomach) pain -- up to 7 percent
  • Vomiting -- up to 6 percent
  • Constriction (narrowing) of the airways (bronchospasm) -- 3 percent.
