About this FactMed analysis covering adverse side effect reports of METHYLPREDNISOLONE 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, 2 individuals taking METHYLPREDNISOLONE reported ACANTHOLYSIS to the FDA. A total of 14791 METHYLPREDNISOLONE 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 METHYLPREDNISOLONE and ACANTHOLYSIS. In doing so, we compare METHYLPREDNISOLONE with other drugs that cause ACANTHOLYSIS, to help you evaluate whether or not METHYLPREDNISOLONE causes ACANTHOLYSIS. Likewise, this page shows the most highly-reported side effects of METHYLPREDNISOLONE, so you can see if ACANTHOLYSIS ranks among METHYLPREDNISOLONE's most well-known side effects.
