Many patients taking NutreStore® and recombinant human growth hormone approved for this indication for the treatment of SBS experience side effects. These side effects may be related to your SBS, to your treatment with the recombinant human growth hormone, or to your treatment with NutreStore®.

The symptoms you may experience while taking NutreStore® may be due to SBS or may be due to NutreStore®.  Reported side effects of NutreStore® have been: urge to empty bowels, gas, abdominal pain, vomiting, and hemorrhoids. You should talk to your doctor about these problems before starting an over-the-counter medication to treat these symptoms.

It is important for you to follow your doctor’s or dietitian’s instructions on the type of diet best for you. Some digestive problems, such as diarrhea and dehydration, can be avoided if the specialized diet your doctor has prescribed for you is carefully followed.

Whether or not you experience side effects, you and your doctor should periodically talk about your general health. Your doctor may want to monitor you more closely and ask you to have blood tests done more frequently.

Tell your doctor about any side effects that bother you or that do not go away.

These are not all the side effects with NutreStore®. For more information, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
