What are the side effects of pramlintide acetate injection?

Side effects of pramlintide acetate (Symlin) injection, other than low blood sugar, may include abdominal pain, nausea, indigestion, vomiting, loss of appetite, fatigue, and dizziness. Some of these symptoms can be diminished if you begin taking pramlintide acetate in lower doses. You may also notice soreness, bruising, or inflammation at the site of injection.

Tell your doctor about less common problems that may occur, such as congestion or runny nose, fever, sore or hoarse throat, joint or muscle pain, swollen glands, difficulty swallowing, changes in your voice, weight loss, irregular heartbeat, mood changes such as depression or anxiety, chills, cold sweats, nightmares, headaches, increase in hunger, cough, or blurred vision. If your face or tongue become swollen, you are wheezing or have shortness of breath, develop a skin rash or tight chest, you may be having an allergic reaction and should seek immediate medical attention by calling 911. Pramlintide acetate injection can, in some cases, lead to seizures, tremors, and coma.
