Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 years ago):
Nasty drug. While indicated not sure of its effectiveness for my condition.......they have not been able to precisely determine the type of mucor invading my body. The problem I have is that the side effects can be somewhat alleviated by premeditation and use of an opioid prn for rigors/pain (protocols call for Demerol but it makes me sick, Fentanyl has been used instead) not all doctors writing the orders for this drug's administration understand these medication protocols and I suffer needlessly.
From this study (2 years ago):
Despite severe reaction to medication (required treatment with adenosine for tachycardia and piriton for all over body hives/urticaria with itching) the treatment was not stopped for 5 days. Very unpleasant for child concerned and nurses carrying out care but medic insisted drug continued for full 5 days. Please more widely disseminate information about these side-effects.
From this study (3 years ago):
I want to know what the drug interactions may be.
