medical professional reporting side effects

Share, Email, Print

Medical professionals are required to report all adverse effects related to a specific form of therapy. However in practice, it is at the discretion of the professional to determine whether a medical event is at all related to the therapy.

As a result, routine adverse effects reporting often may not include long-term and subtle effects that may ultimately be attributed to a therapy.

Managing Your Medicines

Find out as much about your medications as you can to learn how to take it properly. Ask the following questions and write down the answers before leaving the doctor’s office. What is the name of the medicine and why am I taking it? What is the name of the condition this medicine will treat? How long will it take to work? How should I store the medication? Does it need to be refrigerated? Can the pharmacist substitute a less expensive, generic form of the medicine?
