About this FactMed analysis covering adverse side effect reports of ALIZAPRIDE patients who developed PRURITUS.

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, 1 individuals taking ALIZAPRIDE reported PRURITUS to the FDA. A total of 102 ALIZAPRIDE 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 ALIZAPRIDE and PRURITUS.
