The Drug Safety and Information Department processes drug information (medical) and pharmacovigilance (drug safety) enquiries, including suspected adverse drug reactions (side effects). Drug Safety and Information departments are prohibited from commenting on or providing advice on a patient’s medication or treatment. Patients and their representatives must discuss all matters of this nature with the patient’s doctor.
If you get any side effects, talk to your doctor, pharmacist or nurse. This includes any possible side effects not listed in the package leaflet. You can also report side effects directly via the Yellow Card Scheme at www.mhra.gov.uk/yellowcard or search for MHRA Yellow Card in the Google Play or Apple App store.
By reporting side effects, you can help to provide more information on the safety of medicines.
