Less Common Exelon Patch Side Effects
Rare Exelon Patch side effects occurred in less than 1 percent of people using the patch. Because these side effects are so uncommon, it is difficult to tell whether they are actually caused by the medication or something else. There is a good chance that these "side effects" could be completely unrelated to the Exelon Patch.
These rare side effects include but are not limited to:
- Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
- High cholesterol
- Muscle pain or muscle spasms
You may experience some or none of the Exelon Patch side effects listed in this article. 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 taken. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while using the patch or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of the Exelon Patch, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
