If you or someone in your family has experienced a serious side effect to a health product, you are encouraged to report the experience to your health care professional (e.g. physician, pharmacist). You could also complete a copy of the side effect reporting form or report your side effect to FDA.

Side effects reports are analyzed to discover potential health product safety signals. Some important reactions may take an extremely long time to develop or occur infrequently. Continued monitoring of adverse reactions is thus essential to maintain a comprehensive safety and effectiveness profile of health products.

Prezolon Side Effects Reported to FDA

The following Prezolon reports list potential signals of serious risks and new safety information that were identified using the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS).
FAERS is a database that contains information on adverse event and medication errors reports submitted to FDA by healthcare professionals (such as physicians, pharmacists, nurses and others), consumers (such as patients, family members, layers and others) and manufacturers.


The appearance of Prezolon on this list does not mean that FDA has concluded that the drug has the listed risk. It means that FDA has identified a potential safety issue, but it does not mean that FDA has found a causal relationship between the drug and the listed risk.
Abortion
This is a report of a 31-year-old female patient (weight: NA) from GREECE, suffering from the following symptoms/conditions: rheumatoid arthritis, who was treated with Prezolon (dosage: NA, start time: Jul 01, 2010), combined with: NA. and developed a serious reaction and side effect(s). The consumer presented with:
  • Abortion
which developed after the beginning of treatment. This case can indicate the possible existence of increased vulnerability to Prezolon treatment in female patients, resulting in abortion side effect.

Hepatitis B
This report suggests a potential Prezolon Hepatitis B side effect(s) that can have serious consequences. A 72-year-old female patient (weight: NA) from GREECE was diagnosed with the following symptoms/conditions: NA and used Prezolon (dosage: Corticosteroids) starting Jan 01, 2009. Soon after starting Prezolon the patient began experiencing various side effects, including:
  • Hepatitis B
Drugs used concurrently:
  • Arava
  • Orencia
The patient was hospitalized. Although Prezolon demonstrated significant improvements in a number of clinically relevant cases, troublesome symptoms, such as hepatitis b, may still occur.

Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time Prolonged, Blood Urea Increased, Fibrin D Dimer Increased, Haematocrit Decreased, Haemoglobin Decreased, Histiocytosis Haematophagic, Immunosuppression, Parvovirus B19 Serology Positive, Parvovirus Infection
This Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time Prolonged, Blood Urea Increased, Fibrin D Dimer Increased, Haematocrit Decreased, Haemoglobin Decreased, Histiocytosis Haematophagic, Immunosuppression, Parvovirus B19 Serology Positive, Parvovirus Infection problem was reported by a consumer or non-health professional from GREECE. A 7-year-old female patient (weight: NA) was diagnosed with the following symptoms/conditions: NA. On May 02, 2007 this consumer started treatment with Prezolon (dosage: NA). The following drugs were being taken at the same time:
  • Methylprednisolone
  • Kineret (1-2.5 Mg/kg/d)
  • Corticosteroids
  • Methotrexate
  • Cyclophosphamide
  • Enbrel
  • Azathioprine
  • Sandimmune (Unk, Unk)
When commencing Prezolon, the patient experienced the following unwanted symptoms/side effects:
  • Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time Prolonged
  • Blood Urea Increased
  • Fibrin D Dimer Increased
  • Haematocrit Decreased
  • Haemoglobin Decreased
  • Histiocytosis Haematophagic
  • Immunosuppression
  • Parvovirus B19 Serology Positive
  • Parvovirus Infection
Although all drugs are carefully tested before they are licensed for use, they carry side effect risks. Some side effects, such as activated partial thromboplastin time prolonged, may become evident only after a product is in use by the general population.

Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time Prolonged, Blood Urea Increased, Fibrin D Dimer Increased, Haematocrit Decreased, Haemoglobin Decreased, Histiocytosis Haematophagic, Immunosuppression, Parvovirus B19 Serology Positive, Parvovirus Infection
This is a report of a 7-year-old female patient (weight: NA) from GREECE. The patient developed the following symptoms/conditions: NA and was treated with Prezolon (dosage: NA) starting Apr 14, 2007. Concurrently used drugs:
  • Methylprednisolone
  • Kineret
  • Corticosteroids
  • Methotrexate
  • Cyclophosphamide
  • Enbrel
  • Azathioprine
  • Sandimmune
Soon after that, the consumer experienced the following side effects:
  • Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time Prolonged
  • Blood Urea Increased
  • Fibrin D Dimer Increased
  • Haematocrit Decreased
  • Haemoglobin Decreased
  • Histiocytosis Haematophagic
  • Immunosuppression
  • Parvovirus B19 Serology Positive
  • Parvovirus Infection
This opens a possibility that Prezolon treatment could cause the above reactions, including activated partial thromboplastin time prolonged, and some female subjects may be more susceptible.

  • Etanercept
  • Azathioprine
  • Sandimmune




Keep Track of Side Effects

Note Your Observations

It is really important to keep of your symptoms, right from the time you start a new medicine. You can do it any way you prefer: in a notebook, in a computer file or using our online tool. You should also note down any other medicines you are taking at the same time, because there could be an interaction between these medicines.

Why Your Notes are Important

Your notes could be helpful in several ways:

  • You can use them to remind you of details that may alert your health care professional(s) to a problem
  • You will have a record to refer to in the future, in case you are ever prescribed the same medicine again

  • Log Form

    You can use the following log form to write down important information, like the date and time you experienced a side effect and your symptoms, how strong the symptoms were, and any other medicines you were using.

    Medicine Name and Dosage:
    Side Effects Scale Date & Time Other Medicine(s) or Treatment(s)
    Scale: 1 = very mild to 10 = very bad

    You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit the FDA MedWatch website or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
