Tonight or tomorrow, I will start taking Zoloft. I was reading up on side effects, what does incidence not known mean?
Incidence Not Known Mean
In medicine, incidence describes all new cases of something over a time period. Thus, it means that the statistics are unknown as to how many new cases of people suffering from side effects will occur during a given period of time.
They are not tracking the statistics for this particular side effect, not that it doesn’t occur. There may be a reason for this, such as in the case of methylene blue, which causes urine to appear blue. The reason for blue urine isn’t known by drug companies.
It is also possible that statics for recent occurrences have not yet been gathered due to recent reports.
There is no information available on how many people suffer from that sign effect, or if they do, no one has reported it.
Although I am not sure, I think it means that there may be unreported side effects.
