Long-term treatment with epalrestat is well tolerated and can effectively delay the progression of diabetic neuropathy and ameliorate the associated symptoms of the disease, particularly in people with good glycemic control and limited microangiopathy.
Most frequent side effects are: elevations in liver enzyme levels, nausea and vomiting.
However, for more details please do talk to the doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med.
Take care, best wishes!
