About this FactMed analysis covering adverse side effect reports of METAMUCIL-2 patients who developed ADHESION.

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, 3 individuals taking METAMUCIL-2 reported ADHESION to the FDA. A total of 1512 METAMUCIL-2 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 METAMUCIL-2 and ADHESION. In doing so, we compare METAMUCIL-2 with other drugs that cause ADHESION, to help you evaluate whether or not METAMUCIL-2 causes ADHESION. Likewise, this page shows the most highly-reported side effects of METAMUCIL-2, so you can see if ADHESION ranks among METAMUCIL-2's most well-known side effects.
