Introduction: MedsFacts provides MD-approved analysis to help both patients and physicians accurately research and assess the risk-reward trade off for more than 20,000 different pharmaceutical products. The below report offers compiled information from Food & Drug Administration, social media, and MedsFacts user submissions.

A total of 333 L-CARNITINE drug adverse event reaction reports were made with the FDA during this time period.
