Dolobid Side Effects

Common side effects of Dolobid include vomiting, constipation, and nausea. Rare side effects include anemia, depression, and an increase in liver enzymes. Some side effects can be life-threatening. For example, you should call 911 immediately if you experience shortness of breath, slurred speech, or weakness in one part of your body. These side effects can indicate a possible heart attack or stroke.

An Overview of Dolobid Side Effects

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Dolobid® (diflunisal); but not everyone who takes the drug will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in many cases, they are minor, meaning they require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
 
Several factors can affect the chances of developing side effects, including:
 
  • Your age
  • Your general health
  • The dose of Dolobid taken
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Current medicines you may be currently taking.
