Ketek users may experience many rare but dangerous side effects. Ketek’s side effects include:

  • Heart Arrhythmia
  • Low Blood Pressure
  • Jaundice
  • Colon Inflammation

Ketek Side Effects: Heart ArrhythmiaHeart Arrhythmia (abnormal heart beat) is a rare but potentially serious Ketek side effect. Heart Arrhythmia occurs when the heart’s cells contract out of sync with the regular rhythm. This slows the heart rate and feels like a skipped heart beat. Heart Arrhythmia usually does not require treatment but severe cases can lead to heart disease and heart failure.

Ketek Side Effects: Low Blood PressureKetek users may experience a serious side effect of  low blood pressure. Blood pressure measures the force blood vessels use to circulate the

blood. Low blood pressure slows the blood flow causing vital organs to lack oxygen and cease to function. Ketek use may slow the heart beat and lead to low blood pressure. Low blood pressure symptoms include:
  • Lightheadedness
  • Fainting
  • Chest pain

Ketek Side Effects: JaundiceKetek users that develop liver damage may experience a side effect of Jaundice, a yellowish color to the skin and eyes. Jaundice is caused by excess bilirubin, a chemical that red blood cells release after the cells’ iron is removed. Jaundice can develop in patients with liver damage that cannot filter excess bilirubin or liver blockage that decreases the bilirubin flow from the liver to the intestines. Ketek use has been allegedly linked to increased liver damage risk, and, consequently, jaundice.

Ketek Side Effects: Colon InflammationKetek use may lead to bacteria overgrowth in the colon. This rare Ketek side effect can be extremely dangerous and life threatening. Colon inflammation symptoms may include:

  • Severe abdominal cramps
  • Watery diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Frequent bowel movements
