What are the side effects of dinoprostone?

If you experience symptoms of an allergic reaction, including hives, a swollen face or tongue or difficulty breathing, call your doctor immediately. If you have extreme abdominal cramping or pain, or unusually heavy vaginal bleeding, you should also call your doctor as soon as possible. Side effects that may not require medical attention, unless severe, would include diarrhea, fever, headache, nausea, and back pain. Some people who take dinoprostone also experience constipation, swelling of the vulva, bloating, malodorous vaginal discharge, and lower abdominal pain. If you develop any rare side effects, such as irregular heartbeat, chest pain, shortness of breath, wheezing, swelling, blotchy skin, or no pulse in your arms and legs, seek immediate medical attention.
