Safety of CYCLOSET. No antidiabetic drug, including CYCLOSET, has ever been proven to reduce the risk of having a heart attack or other cardiovascular problem such as stroke. However, a 52-week study showed that CYCLOSET did not increase the risk of major cardiovascular events. In clinical studies, the most common side effects that seemed to be caused by CYCLOSET were nausea, fatigue, dizziness, vomiting and headache. Safety and effectiveness have not been established in pediatric patients.
