Precose Side Effects: Summary

You may experience some or none of the side effects of Precose explained above. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects during treatment with Precose. Also let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right" while taking the medicine. While it may not be a Precose side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
