Quazepam Side Effects
In clinical studies, headache, daytime drowsiness, and fatigue were the most commonly reported side effects of quazepam. These side effects are usually mild and do not require medical attention in most cases or are easily treated. However, there are some quazepam side effects that are potentially serious, such as memory loss, suicidal thoughts, and problems with balance.
As with any medicine, side effects are possible with quazepam (Doral®); however, not everyone who takes the medication 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 quazepam. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of quazepam side effects with you.)
Quazepam has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occur in a group of people taking the drug are documented and are then compared to side effects that occur in another group of people not taking the medicine. This way, 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 quazepam included:
- Daytime drowsiness -- in up to 12 percent of people
- Headaches -- up to 4.5 percent
- Fatigue -- up to 1.9 percent
- Dizziness -- up to 1.5 percent
- Dry mouth -- up to 1.5 percent
- Indigestion or heartburn -- up to 1.1 percent.
