In brief: Many

This antiseptic has close chemical similarity to diphenylhydantoin (dilantin), a drug with enough side effects to fill an entire textbook.
Taken for brief periods this can be a highly effective agent against simple urinary tract infection, but would advise against long-term usage in most circumstances.
