Istodax Medication Information

Although some people tolerate this medicine well, most people will develop some type of side effect during treatment. Some common problems include infections, nausea, and vomiting.
 
While many people find this medication effective, it is not suitable for everyone. Information on Istodax should be discussed with your healthcare provider before starting treatment to minimize risks and to help ensure your safety.
