Serious Side Effects

Some Asclera side effects can be quite serious. Be sure to report any of the following potentially dangerous reactions to your healthcare provider:
  • Signs or symptoms of a severe allergic reaction, such as:
    • Hives or a rash (especially a widespread rash)
    • Widespread itching
    • Swelling
    • Wheezing or difficulty breathing
  • Severe pain (which usually occurs if Asclera leaks outside a vein)
  • Severe skin or tissue damage (which usually occurs if Asclera is accidentally injected into an artery or if it leaks outside a vein)
  • Signs of a stroke, such as:
    • Vision or speech changes
    • Weakness or numbness in an arm or leg
    • Severe headache
  • Signs of a blood clot in the leg, such as:
    • Pain in the calf
    • Leg cramps
    • Leg or foot swelling
  • Signs of a blood clot in the lung, such as:
    • Shortness of breath
    • Sharp chest pain
    • Coughing up blood.

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the Asclera side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking Asclera or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to the medication, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
