Druginformer Identified Side Effects: Oedema

Effectiveness Rating:     Overall Rating:

Posted By emanuela on December 3, 2017 @ 10:24 am

Started on 25mg. Incresased to 50mg @ day 18. All well. Then at day 28 I woke up swollen - all body edema: face, eyes, trunk, legs, arms. Discomfort when walking, when inhaling and stomach pressure and discomfort when eating. Went back to 25mg, symptoms started to subside at day 33. HR went up (+20bpm under effort) but also down at rest (-ca 10 bpm, to 40bpm and occasionally below).

* About FAERS: The FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) is used by FDA for activities such as looking for new safety concerns that might be related to a marketed product, evaluating a manufacturer's compliance to reporting regulations and responding to outside requests for information. Reporting of adverse events is a voluntary process, and not every report is sent to FDA and entered into FAERS. The FAERS database may contain duplicate reports, the report quality is variable, and many factors may influence reporting (e.g., media attention, length of time a drug is marketed, market share). For these reasons, FAERS case reports cannot be used to calculate incidence or estimates of risk for a particular product or compare risks between products.
