In brief: Not common

The long-term side effects are uncommon though can be serious.
These include: low immunoglobulin levels, pml (brain infection caused by jc virus), reactivation of hepatitis b infection with resulting liver damage in previously infected patients, and uncommon other serious bacterial, viral and fungal infections.
