Kemadrin Side Effects
Nausea, vomiting, and blurred vision are some of the possible side effects of Kemadrin. Side effects of this medication are often minor and are generally easy to treat. However, Kemadrin can also cause serious side effects. Notify your healthcare provider right away if you develop any serious Kemadrin side effects, including hallucinations, depression, or signs of an allergic reaction (such as hives, a rash, or difficulty breathing).
As with any medicine, Kemadrin® (procyclidine hydrochloride) may cause side effects. If 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 Kemadrin. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Kemadrin side effects with you.)
For many medications (especially new 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 (such as Kemadrin) includes only vague side effect information, with no percentages provided. Therefore, it can be difficult to know how common (or how rare) the side effects of such medications may be.
However, based on general experience with the drug, the following are usually considered common Kemadrin side effects:
- Blurred vision (often caused by dry eyes)
- Difficulty passing urine
- Dry mouth
- Nausea, vomiting, indigestion, or heartburn
- Dilated (wide open) pupils.
