My 51 years mother is suffering from extensive aorta arteritries. Her CT scan reported aneurysm in sub clavian, renal and some of aorta arteries. She was given medication of omnacortil of 60 mg dosage for each day, Folvite 30S once in week, pantodac 40 mg twice every day, folitrac 10 mg once in week and risofos 35 mg once in week and doctor has requested to visit after 3 weeks. She is complaining of extremely weakness, itching in whole body, loss of appetite, pain in veins, no relief in earlier headache, nausea. My query is whether this are expected side effects?
