Dantrium may cause allergic reactions. Get emergency medical help if you experience signs of an allergic reaction, such as hives, itchy skin rash, difficulty breathing or swelling of the face, tongue or throat. The doctor should monitor your liver function with frequent blood tests while you take oral Dantrium.

Discontinue treatment and talk to your doctor as soon as possible if you experience any of the following severe side effects: easy bruising or bleeding, black, bloody or tarry stools, vomit that resembles coffee grounds, blood in the urine, coughing up blood, yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes (jaundice), drastic change in heart rate, chest pain, difficulty breathing or swallowing and extreme fatigue. Dantrium may also cause more common side effects that do not require medical attention unless they worsen or persist.
