MedsFacts Meta-Analysis covering adverse side effect reports of ZOLOFT patients who developed SINUSITIS.
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, 706 individuals taking ZOLOFT reported SINUSITIS to the FDA. A total of 46526 ZOLOFT 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 ZOLOFT and SINUSITIS. In doing so, we compare ZOLOFT with other drugs that cause SINUSITIS, to help you evaluate whether or not ZOLOFT causes SINUSITIS. Likewise, this page shows the most highly-reported side effects of ZOLOFT, so you can see if SINUSITIS ranks among ZOLOFT's most well-known side effects.
The Dashboard explained: The Dashboard first shows general Summary Statistics for ZOLOFT and SINUSITIS, such as the raw number and percentage of patients in FDA reports who used ZOLOFT and developed SINUSITIS. Next, the Dashboard lists the most common reasons (indications) why ZOLOFT 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 ZOLOFT. This pie-chart summarizes, for all FDA reports covering ZOLOFT, whether or not the treating physician felt ZOLOFT (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 ZOLOFT. You may click on any of these side effects to learn more about them, in general, or specifically for ZOLOFT. Finally, we identify the drugs most widely associated with ZOLOFT in FDA literature. You may also click on any of these drugs to view it's dashboard.
