Talacen Side Effects

Some of the possible side effects that may occur with Talacen include constipation, drowsiness, and vomiting. While many of the reactions to this drug tend to be minor, serious problems can also occur. Seek immediate medical treatment if you experience seizures, hallucinations, or difficulty breathing.

An Introduction to Talacen Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Talacen® (acetaminophen and pentazocine) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
