What are the possible side effects of Glyset?

A possible side effect of the diabetes drug Glyset (miglitol) is hypoglycemia -- an excessive drop in blood sugar levels -- when taken with insulin or other diabetes medications. If this happens, you may experience symptoms such as shakiness, dizziness, sweating, headache and numbness around your mouth, and you should call your doctor. If not treated, hypoglycemia can lead to more serious symptoms, such as confusion, seizures and loss of consciousness.

Other side effects of Glyset include gas, diarrhea, stomach pain, skin rash and a decrease in iron levels.
