783 females aged 50 (±5) who take Itraconazole are studied.

Number of reports submitted per year:

Itraconazole for a 50-year old woman.

Information of the patient in this study:

  • Age: 50
  • Gender: female
  • Conditions: Fungal Infection
  • Drugs taken:
    • Itraconazole (itraconazole)

eHealthMe real world results:

Comparison with this patient's adverse outcomes:

  • Seizure(abnormal excessive or synchronous neuronal activity in the brain): 1 (0.13% of females aged 50 (±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
