Side effects tend to be more common and more severe in the first doses of Abelcet, as the body is adjusting to the infusion treatment. Seek medical attention immediately if you experience any of the following side effects:

  • Allergic reactions such as hives, itching skin rash, difficulty breathing, and swelling of the face, tongue, or throat,
  • Chest pain,
  • Blisters on the palms or skin,
  • Black or tarry stools,
  • Excessive bruising or bleeding (including bloody stools),
  • Decreased or infrequent urination,
  • Vomiting blood or material that looks like coffee grounds, or
  • Yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes (jaundice).

If you do not experience severe side effects early in treatment, but develop severe side effects later, it may be cause for concern. Stop treatment and tell your doctor immediately if you experience side effects such as:

  • Signs of an infection, including fever, chills, and sore throat,
  • Changes in heart rate or breathing patterns,
  • Dizziness or fainting,
  • Nausea,
  • Vomiting,
  • Blurry vision, or
  • Skin that is cold or clammy.

Some side effects of Abelcet do not require medical attention unless they worsen or persist for extended periods of time. Milder side effects include:

  • Pale skin,
  • Headache or confusion,
  • Fatigue,
  • Difficulty sleeping, or
  • Slight digestive difficulties such as nausea or diarrhea.

Tell your doctor if you experience any side effects that are not on this list.
