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.

Physiotens Side Effects Reported to FDA

The following Physiotens 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 Physiotens 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.
Acute Hepatic Failure, Hepatotoxicity, Rash
This is a report of a 59-year-old male patient (weight: NA) from AU, suffering from the following symptoms/conditions: NA, who was treated with Physiotens (dosage: NA, start time: Aug 15, 2011), combined with:
  • Cefaclor
  • Metformin Hydrochloride
  • Gliclazide
  • Indapammmide Hemihydrate
  • Indomethacin
  • Irbesartan
  • Metoprolol Succinate
  • Paracetamol
and developed a serious reaction and side effect(s). The consumer presented with:
  • Acute Hepatic Failure
  • Hepatotoxicity
  • Rash
which developed after the beginning of treatment. This case can indicate the possible existence of increased vulnerability to Physiotens treatment in male patients, resulting in acute hepatic failure side effect. The patient was hospitalized.

Haemorrhage Intracranial
This report suggests a potential Physiotens Haemorrhage Intracranial side effect(s) that can have serious consequences. A 49-year-old male patient (weight: NA) from AU was diagnosed with the following symptoms/conditions: NA and used Physiotens (dosage: NA) starting Nov 30, 2010.

  • Haemorrhage Intracranial
Drugs used concurrently:
  • Amlodipine
  • Aspirin (100 Milligram)
  • Atorvastatin
  • Enoxaparin
  • Frusemide
  • Gliclazide
  • Metformin Hydrochloride
  • Metoprolol Tartrate
Although Physiotens demonstrated significant improvements in a number of clinically relevant cases, troublesome symptoms, such as haemorrhage intracranial, may still occur.

Haemoglobin Decreased, Atrial Fibrillation, International Normalised Ratio Increased
This Haemoglobin Decreased, Atrial Fibrillation, International Normalised Ratio Increased problem was reported by a physician from FRANCE. A 84-year-old female patient (weight: NA) was diagnosed with the following symptoms/conditions: NA. On Feb 16, 2012 this consumer started treatment with Physiotens (dosage: NA).

  • Pravastatin
When commencing Physiotens, the patient experienced the following unwanted symptoms/side effects:
  • Haemoglobin Decreased
  • Atrial Fibrillation
  • International Normalised Ratio Increased
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 haemoglobin decreased, may become evident only after a product is in use by the general population.

Dilatation Atrial, Carotid Artery Occlusion, Retinal Artery Occlusion, Macular Oedema, Sinus Bradycardia, Blood Pressure Diastolic Decreased, Ventricular Extrasystoles, Retinal Haemorrhage
This is a report of a 75-year-old male patient (weight: NA) from FRANCE. The patient developed the following symptoms/conditions: NA and was treated with Physiotens (moxonidine) (dosage: 1 Df (1 Df, 2 In 1 D), Oral) starting Jan 01, 2012. Concurrently used drugs:
  • Adenuric (febuxostat) (120 Mg (120 Mg, 1 In 1 D), Oral)
  • Rasilex (aliskiren) (300 Mg (300 Mg, 1 In 1 D), Oral)
  • Omacor (eicosapentaenoic Acid, Docosahexanoic Acid)
  • Plavis (clopidogrel Sulfate)
  • Alfuzosin Hydrochloride
  • Hytacand (hydrochlorothiazide, Candesartan Cilexetil) (16 Mg/12.5 Mg (1 In 1 D), Oral)
  • Crestor
Soon after that, the consumer experienced the following side effects:
  • Dilatation Atrial
  • Carotid Artery Occlusion
  • Retinal Artery Occlusion
  • Macular Oedema
  • Sinus Bradycardia
  • Blood Pressure Diastolic Decreased

The patient was hospitalized and became disabled. This opens a possibility that Physiotens (moxonidine) treatment could cause the above reactions, including dilatation atrial, and some male subjects may be more susceptible.

Renal Impairment, Blood Creatinine Increased, Renal Failure, Hyperuricaemia, Fatigue, Oliguria, Weight Decreased, Gait Disturbance, Arthralgia
A male patient (weight: NA) from FRANCE with the following symptoms/conditions: NA started Physiotens treatment (dosage: 1 Df, Daily) on Apr 01, 2010. Soon after starting Physiotens treatment, the subject experienced various side effects, including:

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.
