About this FactMed analysis covering adverse side effect reports of LASIX patients who developed ACANTHOLYSIS.

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, 7 individuals taking LASIX reported ACANTHOLYSIS to the FDA. A total of 72499 LASIX 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 LASIX and ACANTHOLYSIS. In doing so, we compare LASIX with other drugs that cause ACANTHOLYSIS, to help you evaluate whether or not LASIX causes ACANTHOLYSIS. Likewise, this page shows the most highly-reported side effects of LASIX, so you can see if ACANTHOLYSIS ranks among LASIX's most well-known side effects.
Summary Statistics
Reports of LASIX causing ACANTHOLYSIS: 7
Reports of any side effect of LASIX : 72499
Percentage of LASIX patients where ACANTHOLYSIS is a reported side effect: 0.0097%

FDA reports of any drug causing ACANTHOLYSIS : 33
Average percentage for all medicated patients where ACANTHOLYSIS is reported as a complication: 0.0002%

Issue Description / Topic Timestamp
QUESTION
ANGINA PECTORIS
I am a 100 percent service disabled veteran and live in a Veterans Administration nursing home. I have been diagnosed with unstable angina (after a cardiac cath) and am taking lasix plus other drugs. After lasix was increased from 40 mg to 80 mg I began to have frequent angina attacks. The dose was reduced to 40 mg and I have not had an attack in several days. Could the increased dose of lasix have increased my attacks of unstableangina. I am 87 years old. 2015-03-05 08:06:48
