Reporting of suspected drug adverse reactions
The spontaneous reporting of suspected drug adverse reactions represents an important source of information for pharmacovigilance activities, as it allows to detect potential safety signals about the use of all the drugs available on the market. Pharmacovigilance involves patients, prescribing doctors, healthcare professionals, pharmaceutical companies, institutions and universities; not only healthcare professionals can report suspected adverse reactions, but also citizens.
HOW TO REPORT A SUSPECTED ADVERSE REACTION
Every country has specific laws governing the reporting of adverse drug reactions, therefore if you experience adverse drug reactions with Ecupharma medicinal products authorised in a specific country, you are asked to report the suspected drug adverse reaction according to the local legislation or directly to Ecupharma (see below).
