Implanon Report: glad read that others
A following Implanon side effect report was submitted by a user.
Female patient reported the following Implanon side effects :
I am glad to read that others are experiencing the leg cramps (not glad you have them...but glad I\'m not alone) with the Implanon. It is not listed as a side effect with the drug information. I got the implant in March 2010 and have started having killer leg cramps some days since July 2010. Some nights they are so bad I cannot sleep. Other than that, I don\'t know that the other things are implanon side effects. I already suffer from PTSD and depression/anxiety, so the side effects fo those meds are loss of sex drive, sleep problems, etc. I have always suffered from fatigue and the past 16 years obesity. So I don\'t think any of those things can be contributed to the implanon. However, these leg cramps are awful! If they continue to become more frequent I will have to consider removal of the implant because I cannot take the pain. It is like those bad runners\' cramps that make your legs throb in pain.

Record and Track Your Side Effects
It is very important to keep track of all side effects and discuss them with your doctor. If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately.
Most drugs have a large list of nonsevere or mild adverse effects which do not rule out continued usage. These effects depend on individual sensitivity, and can include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, malaise, vomiting, headache, dermatitis, dry mouth, etc. Check commonly reported side effects . These can be considered a form of pseudo-allergic reaction, as not all users experience these effects; many users experience none at all.
