1,076 females aged 76 (±5) who take Hydroxyurea are studied.


Number of reports submitted per year:

Hydroxyurea for a 76-year old woman.

Information of the patient in this study:

  • Age: 76
  • Gender: female
  • Conditions: Cancer
  • Drugs taken:
    • Hydroxyurea (hydroxyurea)

eHealthMe real world results:

Comparison with this patient's adverse outcomes:

  • Cardiac Arrest: 4 (0.37% of females aged 76 (±5) who take the drug)

As an adverse outcome could be a symptom of a condition, additional studies are listed to help identify the cause: for example, regardless of which drug is taken, how many female HBP patients aged 50 (±5) have nausea

As an adverse outcome could be a side effect of a drug, additional studies are listed to help identify the cause: for example, how many female Aspirin users aged 50 (±5) have nausea
