About this FactMed analysis covering adverse side effect reports of FAMOTIDINE patients who developed ADRENALITIS.

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, 4 individuals taking FAMOTIDINE reported ADRENALITIS to the FDA. A total of 15575 FAMOTIDINE 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 FAMOTIDINE and ADRENALITIS. In doing so, we compare FAMOTIDINE with other drugs that cause ADRENALITIS, to help you evaluate whether or not FAMOTIDINE causes ADRENALITIS. Likewise, this page shows the most highly-reported side effects of FAMOTIDINE, so you can see if ADRENALITIS ranks among FAMOTIDINE's most well-known side effects.
Summary Statistics
Reports of FAMOTIDINE causing ADRENALITIS: 4
Reports of any side effect of FAMOTIDINE : 15575
Percentage of FAMOTIDINE patients where ADRENALITIS is a reported side effect: 0.0257%

FDA reports of any drug causing ADRENALITIS : 27

QUESTION
BLOOD CALCITONIN INCREASED
I have medullary thyroid cancer, but thankfully, post thyroidectomy, my calcitonin level is below 2. However, I have been reading that these proton pump inhibitors such as omeprazole and famotodine can increase calcitonin levels in the blood. What do I do about my gastric reflux? What can be used that won't give me a false calcitonin reading from here on out? 2015-05-18 17:36:58
