What are the side effects of Ryzolt?

Ryzolt has a long list of potential side effects. It may make you feel drowsy, dizzy, lightheaded, sleepy or less alert than usual. If you get up suddenly from a sitting or lying position, you may feel dizzy, lightheaded or faint; get up slowly to help avoid this. Ryzolt may also cause nausea or vomiting, especially when you first start taking it.

Tell your doctor if any of the following symptoms are severe or do not go away: trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, headaches, nervousness, agitation, changes in mood, uncontrollable shaking of a part of the body, muscle tightness, heartburn or indigestion, diarrhea, constipation, sweating, chills or dry mouth.

Call your doctor immediately or go to the emergency room right away if you have more severe side effects, including seizures; sores on the inside of the mouth, nose, eyes, or throat; hoarseness; flu-like symptoms; a rash, itching, trouble breathing or swallowing; swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips, eyes, hands, feet, ankles or lower legs; chest pain; or hallucinations while taking Ryzolt.

Some people may have a serious allergic reaction to Ryzolt, including anaphylaxis. Ryzolt may increase your risk for seizures and can also cause a serious condition called serotonin syndrome. Ryzolt may be harmful if you are pregnant or are breastfeeding. Drinking alcohol can make the side effects of Ryzolt worse.
