Danzen, also known as Serrapeptase or Serratiopeptidase, is an anti-inflammatory enzyme taken for pain management. Chronic inflammation is the root of many problems, including headaches, muscle and joint pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, heart disease and even cancer. Danzen is a safe and natural solution to pain pills. It is also a proteolytic, meaning it can break protein into simpler compounds. Danzen only has a few side effects. However, these side effects can be very serious conditions.
Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a rare condition in which the skin and mucous membranes react severely to a medication or infection. It usually requires hospitalization. It begins with flu-like symptoms and a painful red or purple rash which spreads and blisters which causes the top layer of skin to die and be shed. Other symptoms include facial and tongue swelling, hives, painful skin, blisters in or around the mouth, nose and eyes.
Erythema multiforme, also known as epidermal necrolysis, is an allergic reaction. In this case it would be considered an allergic reaction to Danzen. Symptoms include fever, malaise, itching, aching joints, skin lesions on upper body or face and lips, bloodshot or dry eyes, discharge from eyes and vision problems. The lesions on the body may appear pale and covered by rings (resembling a target). They may begin rapidly and spread quickly or disappear and return repeatedly. They may also vary in size and color. Pruritus, or itching of the skin, may also occur.
Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening allergic reaction that can occur with Danzen or any other medication. Symptoms may occur within seconds or minutes and progress rapidly. Symptoms are abnormal pain or cramping, difficulty breathing, anxiety, confusion, cough, diarrhea, hives, fainting, nausea and vomiting, heart palpitations, red skin and itching, wheezing, and slurred speech. Immediate medical intervention will be needed to stop the progression of the severely serious allergic reaction in order to prevent a possible fatality.
Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver. Symptoms include abdominal pain or distension, dark urine and clay-colored stools, development of breasts in males, itching, fatigue, jaundice, nausea and vomiting, low grade fever and loss of appetite. It may take many months for the swelling of the liver to go down and hepatitis requires medical diagnosis and treatment. Those who have contracted Hepatitis B and C initially may show no signs of inflammation and go a long time without treatment. It is possible to be tested regularly for Hepatitis so that medical intervention can occur, slowing the destruction rate of the liver.
Danzen is a safe alternative to many other drugs as long as patients watch for signs of side effects carefully. Danzen is easy to find, requiring no prescription in America, whereas Germany and Austria require a prescription. It is similar to an NSAID, though it is not classified as one and does not usually carry the same impact on the stomach, kidney, liver or heart that NSAIDs do. Caution should be used with Danzen and if you believe you are suffering from any of the few but serious side effects, immediate action should be taken and treatment should be sought.
