What are the side effects of tolazamide?

Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) is the most common side effect of taking tolazamide, which can occur if you do not eat or exercise consistently while taking the drug. Nausea, heartburn, and a bloated feeling are also very common side effects that occur when taking tolazamide. These symptoms might be alleviated by lowering your dose. Itching, redness, and a rash or hives may also be noticed, but may not last very long. If they do, you should contact your doctor. You might be sensitive to bright light or sunlight while taking this medication. You may experience a decrease in white or red blood cells while taking tolazamide. You may also develop hyponatremia (low salt), weakness, tiredness, dizziness, vertigo, malaise, or headaches. Talk to your doctor if these side effects worry you or get in the way of your everyday life.
