Sida acuta side effects

Dear Stephen,
Does Sida acuta have any side effects, such as loose bowels? I have just started using Sida acuta for hip pain. It seems to help where the doxycycline did not. I had to stop artemesinin due to elevated liver enzymes. THANKS – your information is invaluable!

Stephen’s response:
It can cause loose bowels, though it is rarish. The main general side effect (NOT in the literature) seems to be tiredness. If that occurs just halve the dose and see how it goes.

    Sida Acuta caused severe insomnia for me. I had to stop it. I know it is cause of it, I stopped just that, and I could sleep again, 11 hours a night.
