MedsFacts Meta-Analysis covering adverse side effect reports of OXYCODONE patients who developed MYOCLONUS.

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, 25 individuals taking OXYCODONE reported MYOCLONUS to the FDA. A total of 7808 OXYCODONE 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 OXYCODONE and MYOCLONUS. In doing so, we compare OXYCODONE with other drugs that cause MYOCLONUS, to help you evaluate whether or not OXYCODONE causes MYOCLONUS. Likewise, this page shows the most highly-reported side effects of OXYCODONE, so you can see if MYOCLONUS ranks among OXYCODONE's most well-known side effects.

The Dashboard explained: The Dashboard first shows general Summary Statistics for OXYCODONE and MYOCLONUS, such as the raw number and percentage of patients in FDA reports who used OXYCODONE and developed MYOCLONUS. Next, the Dashboard lists the most common reasons (indications) why OXYCODONE 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 OXYCODONE. This pie-chart summarizes, for all FDA reports covering OXYCODONE, whether or not the treating physician felt OXYCODONE (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 OXYCODONE. You may click on any of these side effects to learn more about them, in general, or specifically for OXYCODONE. Finally, we identify the drugs most widely associated with OXYCODONE in FDA literature. You may also click on any of these drugs to view it's dashboard.
