Didanosine may cause tingling, burning or numbness in the hands and feet (peripheral neuropathy).These symptoms can disappear if recognized quickly and if the dose of the drug is decreased or if the drug is stopped. If you develop any of these symptoms, please inform your doctor or pharmacist. Rarely, didanosine can cause inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis). Symptoms include severe abdominal pain with or without nausea and vomiting. Consult a doctor immediately if this occurs. Other adverse events include diarrhea, nausea, headache, fever,insomnia, dizziness, rash, muscle and joint aches, and mild confusion.

Very rarely, didanosine can cause leucopenia (a decrease in the number of white blood cells so that you have a higher risk of bacterial infection) and an abnormal liver function. These adverse effects usually occur after you have been on the drug for a long period of time. Blood tests will be done regularly to check for any changes in your white blood cell count and to check your liver and pancreas function.

Inform your doctor if you notice any symptoms of fever, chills, shortness of breath, fatigue, abdominal pain and muscle pain.
