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.

Zoplicone Side Effects Reported to FDA

The following Zoplicone 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 Zoplicone 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.
Pulmonary Embolism, Suicide Attempt, Intentional Overdose
This is a report of a 33-year-old female patient (weight: NA) from FRANCE, suffering from the following symptoms/conditions: NA, who was treated with Zoplicone (dosage: NA, start time: NS), combined with:
  • Xanax
  • Lepticur
  • Loxapine Hcl
  • Quetiapine Fumarate
  • Zolpidem
and developed a serious reaction and side effect(s). The consumer presented with:
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Suicide Attempt
  • Intentional Overdose
which developed after the beginning of treatment. This case can indicate the possible existence of increased vulnerability to Zoplicone treatment in female patients, resulting in pulmonary embolism side effect. The patient was hospitalized.

Enuresis, Hyponatraemia, Disorientation, Vomiting, Sedation
This report suggests a potential Zoplicone Enuresis, Hyponatraemia, Disorientation, Vomiting, Sedation side effect(s) that can have serious consequences. A male patient (weight: NA) from FRANCE was diagnosed with the following symptoms/conditions: NA and used Zoplicone (dosage: Started At Least In 2004) starting May 01, 2011. Soon after starting Zoplicone the patient began experiencing various side effects, including:
  • Enuresis
  • Hyponatraemia
  • Disorientation
  • Vomiting
  • Sedation
Drugs used concurrently:
  • Surfalem S25 (Started At Least In 2004)

  • Quetiapine Fumarate
  • Depakote (Started At Least In 2003)
  • Metformin Hcl (700 Mg Per Tablet, 1/2 Tablet Trhee Times Per Day)
The patient was hospitalized. Although Zoplicone demonstrated significant improvements in a number of clinically relevant cases, troublesome symptoms, such as enuresis, may still occur.

Anaphylactic Reaction
This Anaphylactic Reaction problem was reported by a consumer or non-health professional from UNITED KINGDOM. A 28-year-old male patient (weight: NA) was diagnosed with the following symptoms/conditions: NA. On Apr 01, 2001 this consumer started treatment with Zoplicone (dosage: NA).

  • Vitamins Nos (Capsules)
  • Sodium Chloride
  • Aztreonam
  • Azithromycin (Taken On Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays)
  • Creon
  • Minocycline Hydrochloride
  • Heparin
When commencing Zoplicone, the patient experienced the following unwanted symptoms/side effects:

Although all drugs are carefully tested before they are licensed for use, they carry side effect risks. Some side effects, such as anaphylactic reaction, may become evident only after a product is in use by the general population.

Pulmonary Embolism, Intentional Overdose, Suicide Attempt
This is a report of a 33-year-old female patient (weight: NA) from FRANCE. The patient developed the following symptoms/conditions: NA and was treated with Zoplicone (dosage: NA) starting NS. Concurrently used drugs:

  • Xanax
  • Lepticur
  • Loxapine Hcl
Soon after that, the consumer experienced the following side effects:

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.
