Information on suspected side effects of nationally authorised medicines now available through a single website

As of 6th October 2014, European citizens can obtain information on suspected side effects, also known as suspected adverse drug reactions, of an additional 1,700 active substances contained in medicines approved in the European Union (EU) through a website maintained by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

Suspected side effects are reported by patients, consumers and healthcare professionals. These reports are suspected but not necessarily established side effects.

EMA has published a leaflet in all official EU languages to encourage patients to report side effects. The leaflets are available by clicking here (EMA website)or here (ADR website). 

This website is developed with the financial support of operating grants of the European Commission.
