The most frequent side effect of antihistamines is sedation which can manifest as drowsiness.

Less frequently dizziness, asthenia, insomnia (especially in children), euphoria, tremors, hypotension, tachycardia and, at high doses, especially in children, convulsions.
The use of antihistamines at the same time as certain antibiotics or other ototoxic drugs can mask the first signs of ototoxicity, which can only reveal itself when the damage is irreversible. Use with caution in subjects suffering from glaucoma, prostatic hypertrophy, other syndromes of urinary retention, intestinal obstruction, arterial hypertension, cardiovascular disease, bronchial asthma, chronic bronchitis or emphysema, hyperthyroidism. The medicine can exacerbate seizure disorders. It should therefore be used with great caution in subjects suffering from epilepsy. The tablets contain sucrose and are therefore not suitable for people with hereditary fructose intolerance, glucose-galactose malabsorption or sucrase-isomaltase deficiency.
