What are the side effects of Innohep?

Side effects of Innohep can occur. Discomfort at the injection site is common, and need only be reported to your doctor if it is severe or if it is accompanied by bleeding. More serious side effects are possible and you should contact your doctor right away if you experience them. These include symptoms of an allergic reaction to Innohep, including severe itching, a rash or hives, swelling of the face or mouth and trouble breathing. Other serious side effects include:

  • faintness
  • dizziness
  • lightheadedness
  • fever
  • headaches
  • constipation
  • nausea and vomiting
  • chest pain
  • urinary tract infection
  • unusually heavy menstrual flow

Since this drug can cause bleeding, be aware of side effects that would indicate bleeding problems, such as:

  • nosebleeds
  • bruising
  • bleeding gums
  • red skin spots
  • black stools
  • coughing blood
  • bloody urine
  • back and stomach pain
