What are the side effects of metal-4 combination?

Metal-4 combination may, in rare cases, cause side effects, such as symptoms of zinc, copper, manganese or chromium toxicity. These symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, kidney problems, coma, diarrhea, jaundice and behavior changes. These are not likely to occur, however, because the amount of each nutrient in this medication is extremely small. It also is possible to experience less serious side effects like upset stomach or nausea. Some babies experience allergic reactions to metal-4 combination. Symptoms of this include: difficulty breathing, hives and swelling of the lips, tongue, face or throat. If your child experiences any of these signs of allergic reaction, seek emergency medical attention.
