In brief: Bowel & bladder :(

Fatigue(alleviated by rest), transient bowel and bladder irritation it is a common side effect.
One may urinate or desiccate more frequently and may have some irritation related symptoms that are short-lived. They are typically managed well with medications. Uncommon and rare side effects are significant dysuria, obstruction of the urinary flow. There are medications that help with this.
