About this FactMed analysis covering adverse side effect reports of STEROID CREAM patients who developed FORMICATION.

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 STEROID CREAM reported FORMICATION to the FDA. A total of 36 STEROID CREAM 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 STEROID CREAM and FORMICATION. In doing so, we compare STEROID CREAM with other drugs that cause FORMICATION, to help you evaluate whether or not STEROID CREAM causes FORMICATION. Likewise, this page shows the most highly-reported side effects of STEROID CREAM, so you can see if FORMICATION ranks among STEROID CREAM's most well-known side effects.
