Most people have no problems with it, but possible side effects include constipation, nausea, and a "chilly" sensation.
Before taking Tessalon, your healthcare provider needs to know about all the medications you take and whether you have any other medical conditions. Also, make sure to tell him or her if you have any allergies or are pregnant, thinking about becoming pregnant, or breastfeeding.
