Final Thoughts on Side Effects of Primidone

It is possible that you may experience some or none of the primidone 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, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking primidone.

While it may not be a side effect of primidone, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
