Omnaris Side Effects
Throat pain, headaches, and inflamed nose or throat are some of the most commonly reported Omnaris side effects. Those that occur less frequently but are potentially serious include frequent and severe nosebleeds, wheezing or other asthma-like breathing problems, and frequent infections. Notify your healthcare provider immediately if you develop any of these potentially serious side effects of Omnaris.
As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Omnaris™ (ciclesonide). However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Omnaris. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Omnaris side effects with you.)
Omnaris has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials, in which the side effects of a group of people taking the drug are documented and compared to another group 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.
In these studies, the most common side effects of Omnaris included:
- Headaches -- in up to 6.6 percent of people
- Inflamed nose or throat -- up to 6.6 percent
- Nosebleeds -- up to 4.9 percent
- Throat pain -- up to 3.4 percent
- Ear pain -- up to 2.2 percent.
