Side Effects From Megestrol

Megestrol acetate (Megace®) is a prescription medicine used to stimulate appetite in people with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). It is also used to relieve symptoms of breast cancer and endometrial cancer (cancer of the lining of the uterus). In most cases, people tolerate this medicine well; however, side effects are possible and some may be serious.
 
Diarrhea, headaches, and a rash are some of the most common side effects from megestrol. In most cases, reactions to the drug tend to be minor and easy to treat. However, there are also some problems that require immediate medical treatment. Contact your healthcare provider right away if you develop chest pain, difficulty breathing, or vision or speech changes.
