Hi, welcome to healthcare magic
Unfortuately every medication has potential side effects, however it is important to remember the side effects of drugs are possible and may or may not actually occur.
Patients treated with the 10 mg dose have half the side effects of those treated with the 20 mg a day dose. In general less side effects occur with the lower doses.
The potential short term side effects include: weight gain, low potassium, mood changes , stomach upset
and increase risk of stomach ulcers, psychosis
,increase in blood sugar,increase in blood pressure
