Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It can cause headache,nausea and next day gorginess but these side effects are very rare.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
