MedsFacts Meta-Analysis covering adverse side effect reports of STELARA patients who developed NECK PAIN.
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, 81 individuals taking STELARA reported NECK PAIN to the FDA. A total of 5762 STELARA 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.

In doing so, we compare STELARA with other drugs that cause NECK PAIN, to help you evaluate whether or not STELARA causes NECK PAIN. Likewise, this page shows the most highly-reported side effects of STELARA, so you can see if NECK PAIN ranks among STELARA's most well-known side effects.
The Dashboard explained: The Dashboard first shows general Summary Statistics for STELARA and NECK PAIN, such as the raw number and percentage of patients in FDA reports who used STELARA and developed NECK PAIN. Next, the Dashboard lists the most common reasons (indications) why STELARA 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 STELARA. This pie-chart summarizes, for all FDA reports covering STELARA, whether or not the treating physician felt STELARA (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 STELARA. You may click on any of these side effects to learn more about them, in general, or specifically for STELARA. Finally, we identify the drugs most widely associated with STELARA in FDA literature.
