Even though the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) received over 2 million adverse drug event reports in 2019, most reports are never submitted to the agency. Let’s change this!
According to the FDA, you should submit a report when you, a loved one:
- Was hurt or had a bad side effect (including new or worsening symptoms) after taking a drug or using a medical device or product.
- Used a medication incorrectly which could have or led to unsafe use.
- Noticed a problem with the quality of your medication.
- Had problems with how a medication worked after switching from one manufacturer to a different manufacturer.
If you prefer not to submit an online FDA report, call them at 1-800-332-1088.
