Side effects

Just as with other type 2 diabetes treatments, side effects can happen with CYCLOSET.

CYCLOSET can cause serious side effects including low blood pressure, fainting, and severe dizziness, which can happen when your blood pressure lowers rapidly after you stand up from a lying down position.

Less serious, but more common side effects include nausea, tiredness, vomiting, headache, and dizziness.

Side effects like nausea were usually mild to moderate and occurred when people first started taking CYCLOSET and went away within a couple of weeks

Talk to your doctor if you are experiencing any side effects.
