About this FactMed analysis covering adverse side effect reports of ZYVOX patients who developed AKINESIA.

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 ZYVOX reported AKINESIA to the FDA. A total of 5775 ZYVOX 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 ZYVOX and AKINESIA. In doing so, we compare ZYVOX with other drugs that cause AKINESIA, to help you evaluate whether or not ZYVOX causes AKINESIA. Likewise, this page shows the most highly-reported side effects of ZYVOX, so you can see if AKINESIA ranks among ZYVOX's most well-known side effects.
Summary Statistics
Reports of ZYVOX causing AKINESIA: 1
Reports of any side effect of ZYVOX : 5775
Percentage of ZYVOX patients where AKINESIA is a reported side effect: 0.0173%
