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.

Glucor Side Effects Reported to FDA

The following Glucor 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 Glucor 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.
Pneumoperitoneum
This is a report of a 68-year-old male patient (weight: NA) from FR, suffering from the following symptoms/conditions: NA, who was treated with Glucor (dosage: NA, start time: NS), combined with: NA. and developed a serious reaction and side effect(s). The consumer presented with:
  • Pneumoperitoneum
which developed after the beginning of treatment. This case can indicate the possible existence of increased vulnerability to Glucor treatment in male patients, resulting in pneumoperitoneum side effect.

Anaemia
This report suggests a potential Glucor Anaemia side effect(s) that can have serious consequences. A 78-year-old female patient (weight: NA) from FR was diagnosed with the following symptoms/conditions: NA and used Glucor (dosage: Unk) starting Jun 07, 2013. Soon after starting Glucor the patient began experiencing various side effects, including:
  • Anaemia
Drugs used concurrently:
  • Leponex (Unk)
  • Clopidogrel (Unk)
  • Janumet (Unk)
  • Diamicron (Unk)
  • Metformine (Unk)
  • Sotalol
  • Candesartan
  • Eupressyl
The patient was hospitalized. Although Glucor demonstrated significant improvements in a number of clinically relevant cases, troublesome symptoms, such as anaemia, may still occur.

Agranulocytosis
This Agranulocytosis problem was reported by a consumer or non-health professional from FR. A 71-year-old male patient (weight: NA) was diagnosed with the following symptoms/conditions: type 2 diabetes mellitus.

  • Daonil (15 Mg, Qd)
  • Laroxyl (50 Mg, Qd)
When commencing Glucor, the patient experienced the following unwanted symptoms/side effects:
  • Agranulocytosis
The patient was hospitalized.Although all drugs are carefully tested before they are licensed for use, they carry side effect risks. Some side effects, such as agranulocytosis, may become evident only after a product is in use by the general population.

Thrombocytopenia, Dyspnoea, Hyperbilirubinaemia, Pyrexia, Lymphadenopathy

  • Thrombocytopenia
  • Dyspnoea
  • Hyperbilirubinaemia
  • Pyrexia
  • Lymphadenopathy
The patient was hospitalized. This opens a possibility that Glucor treatment could cause the above reactions, including thrombocytopenia, and some male subjects may be more susceptible.


Abortion Spontaneous, Exposure During Pregnancy
A 45-year-old female patient (weight: NA) from FR with the following symptoms/conditions: NA started Glucor treatment (dosage: Daily Dose 150 Mg) on 2004. Soon after starting Glucor treatment, the subject experienced various side effects, including:

  • Feeling Abnormal
A possible interaction with other drugs could have contributed to this reaction:
  • Celebrex (Unk)
  • Celebrex
  • Simvastatin
Establishing a causal relationship between a specific drug and consumer's side effects is complex, but it is possible that in this report Glucoreumin treatment could be related to the listed above side effect(s).

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
