Ultiva Signs, Symptoms, and Side Effects
Some common Ultiva side effects include itching, sweating, headache, muscle pain, cough, sore throat, dizziness, confusion, and agitation.
Ultiva can cause additional, less common side effects, including:
- Weak shallow breathing or breathing that stops
- Fast or slow heart rate
- Stiff muscles
- Severe weakness, feeling light-headed or fainting.
If you experience any side effects or notice any changes after receiving a dose of Ultiva, inform your doctor right away, as some of these may be serious.
Although it’s unlikely to abuse Ultiva in a hospital setting, it’s important to know of the signs of overdose and call for help if you experience any of the symptoms.
Ultiva may react to other drugs (prescription and non-prescription), so tell your doctor if you are taking any medications while being treated with Ultiva. Withdrawal symptoms from Ultiva misuse can be severe, so it’s important not to go it alone. Get help.
The longer opioids are used, the higher the chances of a physical and psychological substance abuse disorder. Using Ultiva long-term can compromise your immune system and depress your respiratory system, leading to chronic infections, pneumonia, and other medical complications. Use Ultiva only as directed.
