About this FactMed analysis covering adverse side effect reports of ZETIA patients who developed ACHLORHYDRIA.

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 ZETIA reported ACHLORHYDRIA to the FDA. A total of 21297 ZETIA 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 ZETIA and ACHLORHYDRIA. In doing so, we compare ZETIA with other drugs that cause ACHLORHYDRIA, to help you evaluate whether or not ZETIA causes ACHLORHYDRIA. Likewise, this page shows the most highly-reported side effects of ZETIA, so you can see if ACHLORHYDRIA ranks among ZETIA's most well-known side effects.
