About this FactMed analysis covering adverse side effect reports of ALFENTANIL patients who developed FALL.

FactMed provides MD-approved analysis to help both patients, researchers, and physicians accurately assess the risk profile for more than 20,000 different pharmaceutical products. The below report offers compiled information from Food & Drug Administration and FactMed user submissions. Between January 2004 and October 2012, 5 individuals taking ALFENTANIL reported FALL to the FDA. A total of 427 ALFENTANIL 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.

FDA Research Report

Introduction This page is designed to help you determine the relationship, if any, between ALFENTANIL and FALL. In doing so, we compare ALFENTANIL with other drugs that cause FALL, to help you evaluate whether or not ALFENTANIL causes FALL. Likewise, this page shows the most highly-reported side effects of ALFENTANIL, so you can see if FALL ranks among ALFENTANIL's most well-known side effects.
