Skelid Side Effects

Indigestion or heartburn, diarrhea, and nausea are the most common side effects that have been seen with Skelid. Side effects are generally minor and don't require medical attention in most cases, but there are a number of less common but potentially serious Skelid side effects that should be reported to a healthcare provider immediately. These include chest pain, difficulty swallowing, and jaw or tooth problems.

Skelid Side Effects: An Introduction

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Skelid® (tiludronate disodium); 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 Skelid. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Skelid side effects with you.)
