An Introduction to Didrex Side EffectsAs with any medicine, side effects are possible with Didrex® (benzphetamine hydrochloride). However, not everyone who takes the medication will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. In most cases, side effects occur when too much Didrex is taken.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Didrex. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Didrex side effects with you.)
Common Didrex Side Effects
Didrex has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occur in a group of people taking the drug are documented and then compared to the side effects that occur in another group of people not taking the medicine. As a result, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.
With newer medications, the exact percentage of how often these side effects occur is available. However, with older medications (such as Didrex), percentages are not available.
In studies, Didrex side effects included:
- Insomnia (see Didrex and Insomnia)
- Shakiness (tremors)
- Dry mouth
- Unpleasant taste in the mouth
- Changes in sex drive.
