Dextrose 50% side effects by duration, gender and age - a phase IV clinical study of FDA data

Summary:

Side effects are reported by people who take Dextrose 50%. Common side effects include status epilepticus among females and vomiting among males.

The phase IV clinical study is created by eHealthMe based on 43 reports from the FDA, and is updated regularly. You can use the study as a second opinion to make health care decisions.

With medical big data and AI algorithms, eHealthMe enables everyone to run phase IV clinical trial to detect adverse drug outcomes and monitor effectiveness. Our original studies have been referenced on 600+ peer-reviewed medical publications including The Lancet, Mayo Clinic Proceedings, and Nature. Most recently, phase IV clinial trails for COVID 19 vaccines have been added, check here.
