I did check possible side effects and it is not listed, although it is not listed, side effects lists are not always complete, I do not know why.
Your friend must contact his / her Dr. asap and inform him / her what she is experiencing because this is not normal at all.-
Possible list of side effects for future reference:
Report side effects to 1-800-FDA-1088 (1-800-332-1088).
I hope your friend gets well soon.
All the best and take care.-
