Side effects that you should report to your doctor or health care professional as soon as possible:

* difficulty breathing, wheezing, or shortness of breath
* chest pain
* excessive sweating or intolerance to heat
* fast or irregular heartbeat
* nervousness
* skin rash or hives

* weight loss

I hope this help, what other meds r u on? it´s because of the interactions.
