Diabetes Home > Oseni Side Effects

Even though most people tolerate Oseni well, side effects are possible and may include a runny nose, upper respiratory tract infections, and back pain. Most of these reactions are minor and easy to treat. However, contact your healthcare provider if you develop problems that may be more serious, such as vision changes, blood in your urine, or difficulty breathing.


An Introduction to Oseni Side Effects

As with any medicine, Oseni® (alogliptin and pioglitazone) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If reactions do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Oseni. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)

Common Side Effects With Oseni

Oseni has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people taking the drug were carefully documented and compared to those that occurred in a similar group of people taking a placebo (a "sugar pill" with no active ingredients) or the individual components of Oseni alone. As a result, it was possible to see what side effects occurred, how often they appeared, and how they compared to the placebo or the other medicines.
In these studies, the most common Oseni side effects included:
  • A runny or stuffy nose and sore throat -- in up to 4.9 percent of people
  • Back pain -- up to 4.2 percent
  • Upper respiratory tract infection, such as the common cold -- up to 4.1 percent.
