Well, you can try drinking LOTS of water, if they are happening around meal times(or you are not eating) you should try eating something. If that does not work the doctor is probably your best option.

If your weight loss is significant or causing you to teeter being underweight, then yes, this is a concern.
If you are uncomfortable with the side effects, it is a concern.

Call the doctor office and see if there is a smaller dosage or another option for medicine. Side effects should usually go away or lessen within 2-4 weeks of use. If the side effects are bothersome and not lessening the longer you take them, then you may want to consider another option.
