  • Drug-induced Epistaxis: An Often-Neglected Adverse Effect. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: As expected, anticoagulant and antiplatelet drugs are the main pharmacotherapeutic agents associated with epistaxis, particularly warfarin, dabigatran, rivaroxaban and aspirin. However, it was reported that some selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, intranasal corticosteroids, certain antibiotics and other drugs or drug associations can also be responsible by nosebleeds. Although most of these epistaxis episodes are mild to moderate, being spontaneously reversed or requiring only minor medical approaches to control it, there are also several case reports, as well as retrospective and prospective studies, documenting severe epistaxis episodes after specific medicines intake. In these cases some invasive medical interventions are demanded to manage the bleeding and avoid life-threatening consequences.This work provides an integrated and comprehensive review on drug-induced epistaxis bridging the gap in the current scientific literature addressing this topic. Therefore, the scientific information gathered and discussed will be valuable to raise awareness of doctors and pharmacists for this drug-related problem, as well as to promote their active pharmacovigilance and reinforce patient education.
