What is a side effect?
A side effect is any unwanted medical occurrence in a patient who has been given a pharmaceutical product that may or may not have been caused by treatment with the product. A side effect can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease associated with the use of the product.
Why report side effects?
By reporting side effects for Medreich products you help us to ensure the safety of our products and our patients. Your information will also enable Medreich to fulfill its reporting responsibilities to health authorities, which requires that we provide information on side effects with our products – even in cases where a relationship between the product and the effect is not established.
If you or the person you are reporting on behalf of are currently suffering from severe side effects you should contact your local doctor or other medical health professional before reporting the side effect.
Medreich can’t give you medical advice – talk to a doctor or pharmacist.
Always read the patient information leaflet, or instruction supplied with your medicine. It lists the known side effects or problems and advises you on what to do.
