There are many different drugs used to treat obesity and its related problems. These drugs all have different side effects, and people will react differently to them. Some people can tolerate the side effects of one drug better than another, or even no side effects at all. Side effects are something that you should expect when taking prescription medication. No drug is perfect, and a doctor can’t know how your body will react until you take it. However, every side effect is worth it if the drug also treats your symptoms and helps you improve your life in other ways. And fortunately, most side effects from delta-8 and other obesity drugs aren’t too serious. Common side effects include dry mouth, upset stomach, headaches, dizziness and fainting. These go away after a few days or weeks in most cases. But read on to learn more about common side effects of Delta 8:


Dry Mouth

Dry mouth is one of the most common side effects of Delta 8. It can be caused by a few different things including parasympathetic over-activation, changes in salivary enzymes and changes in saliva production. While dry mouth isn’t serious, it can be uncomfortable and even painful. A dry mouth is often accompanied by a diminished sense of taste. Some people even lose their sense of taste completely. A dry mouth can make it hard to swallow pills, brush your teeth and even talk. Over time, dry mouth can also lead to cavities, gum disease and other oral health problems. 

Dry mouth is most often treated with a simple solution: increased water consumption. When you’re dehydrated, your body pulls water from your salivary glands. Drinking water will keep your body hydrated, and will keep your mouth moist as well. Dry mouth is a common side effect, but it doesn’t last forever. The majority of people using Delta 8 experience dry mouth for a few weeks or even less. After it passes, you’ll be able to drink water normally once again.

Loss of Appetite

If you’re taking Delta 8, chances are you’ve experienced a loss of appetite at some point. This is a very common side effect and it can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks. However, appetite loss comes with a caveat: you can only expect it to reduce your appetite for unhealthy foods. For many people, a loss of appetite is a good thing. It means eating less, which will result in weight loss more quickly. However, it can be problematic if it makes you lose your appetite for healthy foods. A loss of appetite can cause deficiencies in important vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.

It can also lead to vitamin deficiencies in your blood, which can cause serious health problems. If you’re experiencing a loss of appetite, try to eat healthy and nutritious meals. Don’t stuff yourself silly with high-calorie foods, and don’t go hungry. You can also try to increase your appetite with certain supplements like B-complex vitamins and vitamin C. These can help you retain important nutrients that can be lost due to a loss of appetite.


Constipation is another common side effect of Delta 8 that can show up in the first few weeks of treatment. It can occur because the drug reduces the rate at which food moves through your digestive tract. It can also occur due to changes in your diet and exercise habits. If you have a sudden change in bowel movements, it’s always a good idea to consult a doctor. 


Medication can sometimes cause constipation, and it can be treated with over-the-counter laxatives like Metamucil. However, some people will experience constipation due to dehydration. Dehydration can also cause dry mouth, so you should drink lots of water to prevent this. If you have existing constipation, you can ease it with over-the-counter laxatives like Colace.

Dizziness and Lightheadedness

Dizziness and lightheadedness are very common side effects of Delta 8. They’re caused by changes in blood pressure that result in lower blood flow to the brain. You may feel lightheaded when standing up, sitting up or walking. It can often be accompanied by headaches. Dizziness and lightheadedness can also be accompanied by nausea, vomiting and blurred vision. If you experience a sudden change in your blood pressure, such as standing up too quickly, you might experience all of these side effects. Dizziness and lightheadedness can be serious side effects. It might be indicative of a more serious health problem, especially if you experience it for a prolonged amount of time. If you experience frequent dizziness, it’s a good idea to see a doctor.


Headaches are another common side effect of Delta 8. When headaches occur, it’s important to rule out other causes. This can easily be done by seeing your doctor and having a physical exam. Dietary changes, sleep habits and stress are all common causes of headaches. They can also be attributed to anxiety, depression or migraines. If you’re having headaches, you should try to find their cause. It can be difficult to treat headaches if they are caused by a change in diet. However, they can be treated with over-the-counter painkillers like ibuprofen.

Nausea and Vomiting

Nausea and vomiting are also common side effects of Delta 8. They can be caused by the same things headaches are. Nausea can be difficult to treat. However, you can try eating small meals, chewing slowly and staying hydrated. You can also try anti-nausea medications like Zofran. Nausea and vomiting can be life-threatening when accompanied by other symptoms. If you experience nausea or vomiting together with dizziness, low blood pressure or blurry vision, you should go to the hospital. Nausea and vomiting can be controlled with anti-nausea medications like Zofran, but they rarely go away completely.
