Severe and minor: In a very small percentage of people, they can cause serious complications like chest, leg and abdominal pain, partial vision loss and recurrent headaches. These should be reported. Many people experience mild side effects, which some of which usually resolve with time, like nausea, moodiness, oily skin, breast tenderness, shedding hair.
