It is very important that your doctor check your or your child's progress at regular visits. This will allow your doctor to see if the medicine is working properly and to decide if you should continue to take it. Blood, urine, and other laboratory exams may be needed to check for unwanted effects.

This medicine may decrease gastrointestinal motility, which can increase the radiation absorbed dose to your stomach. Check with your doctor right away if you have constipation while using this medicine.

This medicine may cause hypokalemia (low potassium in the blood). Check with your doctor right away if you have dry mouth, increased thirst, muscle cramps, nausea or vomiting, or uneven heartbeat while using this medicine.

This medicine may cause your stools to appear in color blue. This is normal and nothing to worry about. Also, if you open the capsules and mixed them with food, your mouth and teeth may be colored blue.
