Zypine may make you drowsy or dizzy. Do not drive or take part in any activity in which you need to be alert. Dizziness may be worse when you get up from a sitting or lying down position, especially if you are taking Zypine for the first time or if your dose is still being adjusted. This is normal and should disappear gradually as you get used to the medicine. It will help if you get up slowly from a sitting or lying down position.
Some common side effects with Zypine include increased appetite, weight gain, dry mouth, constipation, indigestion, stomach discomfort, difficulty sleeping, tiredness, weakness and water retention. Inform your doctor if these side effects become severe or refuse to go away.
Other side effects are less common but may need immediate medical help. Alert your doctor immediately if you experience any of these symptoms:
- rapid or irregular heartbeat
- chest pain
- any signs of an impending heart attack
- difficulty breathing or wheezing
- severe tiredness or weakness
- fever with persistent sore throat or mouth ulcers, or other signs of infection
- uncontrolled muscle movements of your body, face or tongue, such as lip smacking or worm-like movements of the tongue
- uncontrollable urge to move constantly or an inability to sit still
- muscle stiffness or spasm
- shaky, trembling hands or legs
- excessive sweating
- rapid rise in your body temperature or an inability to cool down on a hot day
- excessive or persistent drowsiness or dizziness
- yellowing of the eyes or skin
- swelling, pain or redness in the lower leg
- thoughts or attempts to harm yourself or others
Take care, best wishes!
