Even though most people don't experience problems with Akineton, side effects are possible. In most cases, side effects are mild and are easily treated -- if treatment is even required. Some of the most common side effects of Akineton include nausea, constipation, and blurred vision. However, more serious side effects may occur (such as depression, hallucinations, and fever), which should be reported immediately to your healthcare provider.
An Introduction to Akineton Side EffectsJust like any medicine, Akineton® (biperiden hydrochloride) may cause side effects. If Akineton side effects do occur, they are often minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Akineton. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Akineton side effects with you.)
Common Side Effects of AkinetonFor many medications, the prescribing information carefully details the exact percentage of side effects that were seen in clinical trials. However, the prescribing information for almost all older medications (including Akineton) includes only vague information about possible side effects, without any percentages provided. Therefore, it can be difficult to know how common (or how rare) the side effects of such medications may be.
Based on general experience with the drug, the following are usually considered common Akineton side effects:
- Dry mouth
- Nausea and vomiting
- Dry eyes
- Blurred vision (often caused by dry eyes)
- Difficulty passing urine
- Dilated (wide open) pupils.
