Risks and medical supervision

The most frequently observed adverse effects in animals were: Increased heart rate in a 13-week study in monkeys. The doses these monkeys received were higher than those given in the current study. The increase in heart rate was believed to be due to overreaction of the immune system (see item 3 below for further details) and skin rash.
