Several: Oversedation is the most common side effect. Of more concern is metabolic syndrome including wt gain, inc triglycerides and in some cases diabetes. As with all medications it is always a matter of weighing risk vs benefit. Many more potential side effects. Some people have no side effects. There are also similar medications that are less likely to have these side effects.
