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.

Betaserc Side Effects Reported to FDA

The following Betaserc 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 Betaserc 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.
Cholestatic Liver Injury, Gamma-glutamyltransferase Increased, Blood Alkaline Phosphatase Increased
This is a report of a 84-year-old male patient (weight: NA) from SWITZERLAND, suffering from the following symptoms/conditions: NA, who was treated with Betaserc (dosage: NA, start time: Feb 03, 2012), combined with:
  • Acetaminophen
  • Rocephin
  • Amlodipin Actavis
  • Zoloft
  • Nexium
  • Mycostatin
  • Haldol
  • Ferinject
and developed a serious reaction and side effect(s). The consumer presented with:
  • Cholestatic Liver Injury
  • Gamma-glutamyltransferase Increased
  • Blood Alkaline Phosphatase Increased
which developed after the beginning of treatment. This case can indicate the possible existence of increased vulnerability to Betaserc treatment in male patients, resulting in cholestatic liver injury side effect.

Transient Ischaemic Attack, Paraesthesia, Skin Odour Abnormal, Loss Of Consciousness, Somnolence, Confusional State, Fatigue, Apathy, Hepatic Cyst
This report suggests a potential Betaserc Transient Ischaemic Attack, Paraesthesia, Skin Odour Abnormal, Loss Of Consciousness, Somnolence, Confusional State, Fatigue, Apathy, Hepatic Cyst side effect(s) that can have serious consequences. A 78-year-old female patient (weight: NA) from CROATIA (local name: Hrvatska) was diagnosed with the following symptoms/conditions: deafness,diabetes mellitus and used Betaserc (dosage: NA) starting Jan 01, 2004.

  • Hydrochlorothiazide W/cilazapril
  • Moduretic 5-50 (1 Df, Qd)
  • Bisoprolol Fumarate (1 Df, Qd)
The patient was hospitalized. Although Betaserc demonstrated significant improvements in a number of clinically relevant cases, troublesome symptoms, such as transient ischaemic attack, may still occur.

Convulsion, Sciatica, Headache
This Convulsion, Sciatica, Headache problem was reported by a consumer or non-health professional from BRAZIL. A female patient (weight: NA) was diagnosed with the following symptoms/conditions: dizziness,insomnia,blood cholesterol increased,convulsion.

Atrioventricular Block Second Degree, Heart Rate Decreased, Sense Of Oppression
This is a report of a 50-year-old female patient (weight: NA) from FRANCE. The patient developed the following symptoms/conditions: NA and was treated with Betaserc (dosage: Unk Ukn, Unk) starting Jan 17, 2012. Concurrently used drugs:

Soon after that, the consumer experienced the following side effects:
  • Atrioventricular Block Second Degree
  • Heart Rate Decreased
  • Sense Of Oppression
The patient was hospitalized. This opens a possibility that Betaserc treatment could cause the above reactions, including atrioventricular block second degree, and some female subjects may be more susceptible.

Hypertension, Micturition Frequency Decreased
A 67-year-old male patient (weight: NA) from BRAZIL with the following symptoms/conditions: ear disorder started Betaserc treatment (dosage: 1 Tablet, Qd) on NS. Soon after starting Betaserc treatment, the subject experienced various side effects, including:

  • Aspirin
  • Ancoron
  • Insulin (30 Cc)
  • Diovan (160 Mg, Qd)

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.
