What are the side effects of taking Cogentin?

Common side effects of Cogentin are drowsiness, dry mouth, nose, and throat, blurred vision caused by dry eyes, dilated pupils, light sensitivity, constipation, nausea, vomiting, nervousness, and tingly, warm, or reddish skin. Standing or sitting up too quickly may cause dizziness. These side effects are usually mild, but talk to your doctor if they persist or worsen. Possible serious side effects include: faintness; chest pain; palpitations; rapid heartbeat; pain or trouble with swallowing; stomach pain; erectile dysfunction; difficulty climaxing; trouble urinating; confusion; hallucination; depression; or memory loss. Severe constipation may indicate intestinal obstruction. Fever, headache, weakness, and hot, dry skin are symptoms of heat stroke. Seek emergency medical attention if you develop difficulty breathing, hives, an itchy rash, or facial, oral, and throat swelling, as these are symptoms of an allergic reaction.
