Ansaid Side Effects
Some common Ansaid side effects include gas, high liver enzymes, itching, and vision problems. A few uncommon side effects include asthma, blood in the urine, hepatitis, and numbness or tingling. Among the serious side effects of Ansaid that require emergency medical attention are slurred speech, chest pain, shortness of breath, and weakness on one part of your body. These serious side effects can indicate a heart attack or stroke in some people taking Ansaid.
As with any medicine, there are possible side effects with Ansaid® (flurbiprofen). However, not everyone who takes Ansaid will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate Ansaid well. When people do develop Ansaid side effects, they are generally minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
There are also several factors that seem to affect the chances of developing side effects, including a person's:
- Dose of Ansaid
- Other medical conditions
- Current medicines.
