Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects:

confusion, unusual thoughts or behavior;

unusual risk-taking behavior, decreased inhibitions, no fear of danger;

depressed mood, thoughts of suicide or hurting yourself;

hyperactivity, agitation, hostility;


feeling light-headed, fainting;

muscle twitching, tremor;

fever, chills, body aches, flu symptoms;

jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes); or

Less serious side effects are more likely to occur, such as:

muscle weakness, lack of balance or coordination;

slurred speech;
