Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to tell whether any particular side effect (such as nausea) is caused by Desogen or other factors.
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any problems while taking this medication or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of Desogen, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
