What are the possible side effects?

There are possible side effects when taking RYBELSUS®. Always talk to your healthcare provider right away about any side effect that bothers you or doesn't go away.

The most common side effects of RYBELSUS® may include:

  • Nausea
  • Stomach (abdominal) pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Decreased appetite
  • Vomiting
  • Constipation

Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea are most common when first starting RYBELSUS® and when your dose increases.a

aIn studies, GI side effects were more common in people taking RYBELSUS® than in people taking placebo, and people taking RYBELSUS® were more likely to stop treatment because of these side effects. Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea may cause a loss of fluids (dehydration), which could cause existing kidney problems to get worse (including kidney failure).

If you experience nausea while taking RYBELSUS®, please talk to your healthcare provider.

For a complete list of possible side effects of RYBELSUS®, see the Prescribing Information and Medication Guide.

For medical advice about side effects, talk with your healthcare provider. You may report side effects to the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

Here are some nausea tips that may be helpful:

  • Slowly eat smaller, more frequent meals
  • Eat foods that are light and bland, like saltine crackers or plain bread
  • Avoid fried, greasy, or sweet foods
  • Drink clear or ice-cold drinks
