Natroba Side Effects
Skin irritation and redness at the application site are among the most commonly reported side effects of Natroba. Other common reactions include eye redness, hair loss, and skin dryness. In most cases, side effects are easy to treat. However, tell your healthcare provider if you develop more serious problems, such as significant skin irritation or signs of an allergic reaction.
Just like any medicine, side effects are possible with Natroba® (spinosad). However, not everyone who uses the medication will experience 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 Natroba. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
Natroba has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, one group of people was treated with Natroba and another group was treated with permethrin cream (Nix®). This way, it was possible to see which side effects occurred, how often they occurred, and how they compared between the two groups.
In these studies, the most common Natroba side effects included:
- Skin redness at the application site -- in up to 3 percent of people
- Eye redness -- up to 2 percent
- Skin irritation at the application site -- up to 1 percent.
Other, less common reactions (occurring in 0.1 to 1 percent) included:
- Skin dryness
- Peeling skin
- Hair loss.
