Hi, I currently started to use serrapatase for neck and back muscle tightness and results were incredible. However, my eyes felt itch after the third day of dosage (120,000 2x per day on empty stomach) and were blood shot and my face felt hot and itchy. Just wondering if you heard of similair side effects?

Brief Answer: This can be due to allergy Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing on XXXXXXX To my knowledge Serrapatase is a vitamin supplement. It is an alternative medicine not approved by FDA though. Some component (ingredient/excipient) might have caused this reaction. Itching, redness ,raise in temperature are clearly suggestive of allergy & I suggest to stop using it. Consult the doctor if the reaction is not subsiding. Apply calamine lotion on the affected parts. Though they give promising results, since they lack established data it becomes difficult to say whether it was the real culprit. Hope I have answered your query. Do write us for further queries.
