Midamor Side Effects
While most people have no problems when taking Midamor, side effects can occur. Common side effects include diarrhea, headache, and loss of appetite. These side effects are generally minor and easily treated. However, more serious side effects of Midamor can also occur. Contact your healthcare provider immediately if you are having symptoms such as fainting spells or yellowing of the skin (jaundice).
An Overview of Midamor Side EffectsAs with any medicine, side effects are possible with Midamor® (amiloride hydrochloride); however, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can be easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
