Verdeso Side Effects

Although most people tolerate Verdeso well, side effects can occur and may include upper respiratory tract infections, coughing, and headaches. Most of these problems are typically easy to treat. However, notify your healthcare provider immediately if you are using Verdeso and develop symptoms such as severe fluid retention, hallucinations, or difficulty breathing.

An Introduction to Verdeso Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Verdeso® (desonide foam) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will have problems. 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 are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
 
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Verdeso. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
 

Common Side Effects of Verdeso

Verdeso has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, one group of people received Verdeso, while another group was given a placebo (a foam that does not contain any active ingredients). As a result, it was possible to see what side effects occurred, how often they appeared, and how they compared to the placebo.
 
In clinical trials, the most common reaction to Verdeso included:
 
  • Upper respiratory tract infections (such as the common cold) -- in up to 10 percent of people
  • Cough -- up to 4 percent
  • Burning at the application site -- up to 3 percent
  • Viral infections -- up to 2 percent
  • Increased blood pressure -- up to 2 percent
  • Headache -- up to 2 percent.
 
Other common adverse reactions, each occurring in 1 percent of people, included:
 
  • Asthma
  • Irritability
  • A sore throat
  • Weakening and thinning of the skin
  • Reactions at the application site, such as:
 
 
In general, side effects are more likely to occur if a dressing, such as a bandage, is used to cover the medicine. Do not use a dressing unless your healthcare provider specifically recommends that you do so.
