Hope this helps:
most COMMON side effects persist or become bothersome when using Zytiga:
Cold-like symptoms; cough; diarrhea; flushing of the skin; heartburn; joint swelling, discomfort, or pain; mild muscle discomfort.
Seek medical attention right away if any of these SEVERE side effects occur when using Zytiga:
Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue); bone pain; chest pain or discomfort; confusion; fast or irregular heartbeat; fever, chills, or persistent sore throat; muscle pain, weakness, or cramping; severe or persistent headache, dizziness, or light-headedness; shortness of breath; sudden or unexplained weight gain; swelling of the hands, ankles, legs, or feet; symptoms of liver problems (eg, dark urine; loss of appetite; pale stools; unusual nausea, stomach pain, or tiredness; yellowing of the skin or eyes); urination problems (eg, difficult, increased, or painful urination).
