Thanks for your query.
Long term side effects of Sazo
are primarily damage of kidneys and liver
and, in some patients, a lung disorder or hair loss. In males, it can reduce formation of sperms, which is reversed on stopping of sazo.
It is therefore mandatory that kidneys and liver function tests should be carried out once a month, to monitor damage, if any, to these organs.
There is no way, except for stopping it, or reducing the dose, can minimize the side effects. However, reducing the dose will aggravate the condition, necessitating addition of steroids
, which have more serious side effects.
