About this FactMed analysis covering adverse side effect reports of ALMARL patients who developed HEPATOMEGALY.

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 ALMARL reported HEPATOMEGALY to the FDA. A total of 227 ALMARL 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 ALMARL and HEPATOMEGALY. In doing so, we compare ALMARL with other drugs that cause HEPATOMEGALY, to help you evaluate whether or not ALMARL causes HEPATOMEGALY. Likewise, this page shows the most highly-reported side effects of ALMARL, so you can see if HEPATOMEGALY ranks among ALMARL's most well-known side effects.
