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.

Zanidip Side Effects Reported to FDA

The following Zanidip 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 Zanidip 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.
Gastrointestinal Haemorrhage
This is a report of a 68-year-old female patient (weight: NA) from FRANCE, suffering from the following symptoms/conditions: NA, who was treated with Zanidip (dosage: 10 Mg, Qd, start time: Feb 26, 2010), combined with:
  • Zopiclone (7.5 Mg, Qd)
  • Valsartan (40 Mg, Qd)
  • Medformine (1700 Mg, Qd)
  • Depakene (500 Mg, Qd)
  • Phenobarbital Tab (100 Mg, Qd)
  • Nexavar (800 Mg, Qd)
and developed a serious reaction and side effect(s). The consumer presented with:
  • Gastrointestinal Haemorrhage
which developed after the beginning of treatment. This case can indicate the possible existence of increased vulnerability to Zanidip treatment in female patients, resulting in gastrointestinal haemorrhage side effect. The patient was hospitalized.

Lung Neoplasm Malignant, Metastasis
This report suggests a potential Zanidip Lung Neoplasm Malignant, Metastasis side effect(s) that can have serious consequences. A 69-year-old female patient (weight: NA) from VENEZUELA was diagnosed with the following symptoms/conditions: NA and used Zanidip (dosage: Unk) starting NS. Soon after starting Zanidip the patient began experiencing various side effects, including:
  • Lung Neoplasm Malignant

Drugs used concurrently:

Although Zanidip demonstrated significant improvements in a number of clinically relevant cases, troublesome symptoms, such as lung neoplasm malignant, may still occur.

  • 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.
