Side Effects
Like all medicines, CELMANTIN can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.
It is important to be aware of what these side effects may be. They are usually mild and disappear after a short time.
Stop taking CELMANTIN and seek medical help immediately if any of the following allergic reactions are present: Difficulty in breathing, with or without swelling of the face, lips, tongue and/or throat; Swelling of the face, lips, tongue and/or throat, which may cause difficulty in swallowing; Severe itching of the skin (with raised lumps).
Also, stop taking CELMANTIN and talk to the doctor immediately if there are any unusual aches or pains in the muscles which go on for longer than might be expected. As with other statins, a very small number of people have experienced unpleasant muscle effects and rarely have these gone on to become a potentially life-threatening muscle damage known as rhabdomyolysis.

If the patient thinks he/she is having an allergic reaction, then he/she should stop taking CELMANTIN and seek medical help immediately.
