Druginformer Identified Side Effects: Chest pain, Chest discomfort, Fatigue, Hypopnoea

Effectiveness Rating:     Overall Rating:

Posted By Carrie on May 14, 2018 @ 2:08 pm

shortly after beginning the infusions I had a dull knawing pain in my chest and difficulty taking deep breaths. I was admitted into the hospital and the pain eventually went away. I am still taking the medicine (3 weeks to go) but am also extremely fatigued. I could fall asleep in the middle of the day after havning a full nights rest. It's almost like the exhaustion you feel when you are pregnant. I have mild aching in my joints but it's tolerable.

Additional Drug Information


* Warning: The facts and figures contained in these reports are accurate to the best of our capability; however, our metrics are only meant to augment your medical knowledge, and should never be used as the sole basis for selecting a new medication. As with any medical decision, be sure to work with your doctor to ensure the best choices are made for your condition.

* 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.
