Postmarketing Experience (addition)
  • The following adverse reactions have been identified during post-approval use of Thallous Chloride Tl 201. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure: Injection site reactions and extravasation of Tl-201 have been reported: burning, pain, redness, swelling, warmth, and, in one case, tissue damage with chronic ulcer formation.
