Adverse experiences with SUCRAID in clinical trials were generally minor and were frequently associated with the underlying disease.
In clinical studies of up to 54 months duration, physicians treated a total of 52 patients with SUCRAID. The adverse experiences and respective number of patients reporting each event (in parenthesis) were as follows: abdominal pain (4), vomiting (3), nausea (2), diarrhea (2), constipation (2), insomnia (1) headache (1) nervousness (1) and dehydration (1).
Note: diarrhea and abdominal pain can be a part of the clinical presentation of the genetically determined sucrase deficiency, which is part of congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency (CSID).
