ADHD Home > Metadate ER Side Effects
Some Metadate ER side effects, while not as common, are potentially serious and should be reported to your healthcare provider. These include:

- Shortness of breath
- Depression (see Metadate and Depression)
- More outgoing or aggressive behavior than normal
- Strange behavior
- Signs of Raynaud's disease, such as cold and numb fingers and toes
- Hallucinations (seeing, hearing, or feeling things that are not really there)
- Agitation or restlessness
- Uncontrolled movements of the head, neck, mouth, arms, or legs (known as tics)
- Signs of an allergic reaction, including:
- Unexplained skin rash
- Wheezing or difficulty breathing
- Unexplained swelling.
Rare Metadate ER Side Effects
Some Metadate ER side effects are quite rare and were reported in very few people taking the medicine. Given how uncommon they occur, it can be difficult to tell whether these side effects are actually caused by the medication or by something else.
Some of these rare side effects include, but are not limited to:
- Changes in liver function (including hepatitis)
- Hair loss
If you suffer from seizures, heart problems, or mental problems, Metadate ER can aggravate the symptoms associated with these conditions.
You may experience some or none of the Metadate ER side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, be sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
