Safety & side effects

The safety profile of SPINRAZA has more than 8 years of follow-up data consistent with those previously reported

Blood and urine testing

Because an increased risk of bleeding
and kidney damage has been seen in
similar medications, individuals taking
SPINRAZA may be at similar risk.

It is recommended that your
healthcare provider (HCP) perform
blood and urine testing once before
treatment and again before each dose
to monitor for signs of these risks.

Common side effects

In clinical studies, the most common
side effects of SPINRAZA included
lower respiratory infection, fever,
constipation, headache, vomiting,
back pain, and post-lumbar puncture
syndrome (headache related to the
intrathecal procedure).
