MedsFacts Meta-Analysis covering adverse side effect reports of NORTRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE patients who developed MYASTHENIA GRAVIS CRISIS.



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. Between January 2004 and October 2012, 4 individuals taking NORTRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE reported MYASTHENIA GRAVIS CRISIS to the FDA. A total of 276 NORTRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE drug adverse event reaction reports were made with the FDA during this time period. Often the FDA only receives reports of the most critical and severe cases; these numbers may therefore underrepresent the complication rate of the medication.

Topics covered: This page is designed to help you determine the relationship, if any, between NORTRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE and MYASTHENIA GRAVIS CRISIS. In doing so, we compare NORTRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE with other drugs that cause MYASTHENIA GRAVIS CRISIS, to help you evaluate whether or not NORTRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE causes MYASTHENIA GRAVIS CRISIS. Likewise, this page shows the most highly-reported side effects of NORTRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE, so you can see if MYASTHENIA GRAVIS CRISIS ranks among NORTRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE's most well-known side effects.

The Dashboard explained: The Dashboard first shows general Summary Statistics for NORTRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE and MYASTHENIA GRAVIS CRISIS, such as the raw number and percentage of patients in FDA reports who used NORTRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE and developed MYASTHENIA GRAVIS CRISIS. Next, the Dashboard lists the most common reasons (indications) why NORTRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE was prescribed for patients. We then display a pie-chart which shows, in aggregate, what we believe represents general physician opinion of the safety of NORTRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE. This pie-chart summarizes, for all FDA reports covering NORTRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE, whether or not the treating physician felt NORTRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE (versus other drugs the patient was taking) was responsible for the adverse side-effects. After the pie-chart, we itemize the most common side effects in FDA studies covering NORTRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE. You may click on any of these side effects to learn more about them, in general, or specifically for NORTRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE. Finally, we identify the drugs most widely associated with NORTRIPTYLINE HYDROCHLORIDE in FDA literature. You may also click on any of these drugs to view it's dashboard.
