Hello,

Encorate may cause dizziness and also blurred vision but it is not common for it to cause fainting and loss of consciousness.
It is important that you see your doctor to rule out other causes of loss of consciousness such as a heart problem or other conditions.

Your doctor may do a thorough physical examination and may order certain tests such as CBC, ERS, basic metabolic profile, ECG, a heart ultrasound, etc.

I hope this answers your query. I remain at your disposal in case further medical assistance is needed.

Regards,
