Pamelor Side Effects That You Need to Know

 

Pamelor side effects: Overview

While Pamelor side effects cannot really be anticipated, if any develop or change in intensity you need to contact your physician immediately. Your doctor can then determine whether you can continue taking this antidepressant medication in spite of Pamelor's side effects.

Some of the more common Pamelor side effects may include:

Abdominal cramps, agitation, anxiety, black tongue, blurred vision, breast development in males, breast enlargement, confusion, constipation, delusions, diarrhea, dilation of pupils, disorientation, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, excessive or spontaneous flow of milk, excessive urination at night, fatigue, fluid retention, flushing, frequent urination, hair loss, hallucinations, headache, heart attack, high or low blood pressure, high or low blood sugar, hives, impotence, inability to sleep, inability to urinate, increased or decreased sex drive, inflammation of the mouth, intestinal blockage, itching, loss of appetite, loss of coordination, nausea, nightmares, numbness, pain, perspiration, pins and needles in the arms and legs, rapid, fluttery, or irregular heartbeat, rash, reddish or purple spots on the skin, restlessness, restlessness, seizures, sensitivity to light, stomach upset, strange taste, stroke, swelling of the testicles, swollen glands, tingling, tremors, vision problems, vomiting, weakness, weight gain or loss, yellow eyes and skin.

 

Pamelor side effects due to rapid decrease or abrupt withdrawal after long-term use:

Headache, nausea, vague feeling of bodily discomfort,

While these Pamelor side effects can be significant they do not indicate addiction to this medication.

Possible drug interactions in addition to Pamelor side effects:

Combining Pamelor and MAO inhibitors can be fatal. Pamelor may intensify the effects of alcohol so you should not drink while taking this antidepressant medication. Pamelor should not be taken with certain other drugs, as the effects may be increased or decreased or altered in other ways. You should always check with your physician before combining Pamelor with any other medications.

While the above list of side effects is fairly comprehensive, you should never consider this to be an absolutely complete listing of Pamelor side effects.
