Hello kcd51b,

Yes, it does, I suggest you let your Dr. know about it.

For the Consumer

Applies to acarbose: oral tablet

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction while taking acarbose: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

Call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect such as:

severe stomach pain, severe constipation;
diarrhea that is watery or bloody;
easy bruising, unusual bleeding (nose, mouth, vagina, or rectum), purple or red pinpoint spots under your skin; or
nausea, upper stomach pain, itching, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes).

Less serious side effects of acarbose may include:

mild stomach pain, **gas**, bloating;
mild diarrhea; or
**mild skin rash** or itching.

This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects.

Take care,
