Information on suspected side effects now available through a single website

Information on suspected side effects, also known as suspected adverse drug reactions, of an additional 1,700 active substances contained in medicines approved in the European Union (EU) are now available through a website maintained by the European Medicines Agency (EMA),

The website, launched in 2012, previously only contained information on suspected side effects reported with centrally authorised medicines. Its expansion now also allows the public to access the relevant information for medicines approved by national authorities in the EU.
