Clinoril Side Effects

Some people will develop side effects while taking Clinoril. The most commonly reported reactions include heartburn, dizziness, gas, and nausea. Rare side effects (occurring in less than 1 percent of people) include increased liver enzymes, pancreatitis, and hair loss. If you develop any serious side effects, such as an allergic reaction or vomiting blood, seek immediate medical attention.

An Overview of Clinoril Side Effects

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Clinoril® (sulindac). However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, they are generally minor and either require no treatment or can be treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
 
Several factors can affect the chances of developing Clinoril side effects, including:
 
  • Your Clinoril dosage
  • Your age
  • Other medical conditions
  • Other medicines being taken at the same time.

Common Side Effects of Clinoril

Clinoril has been studied extensively in clinical trials, with thousands of people worldwide having been evaluated. In these studies, side effects are always documented and compared to those that occurred in a similar group of people not taking the medicine.
