DRUG SAFETY INFORMATION WEB SITE WHAT THE FDA KNOWS OR HAS HEARD ABOUT YOUR DRUG OR PRESCRIPTION MEDICINE LIKE WARNINGS AND ALERTS
So you just got a prescription from the doctor or have been taking a medicine for years. Most medicines are safe for most people when you follow instructions. But many many medications have reports of problems for some people somewhere. Now instead of just wondering or hoping you happen to read a news article you can find out about any warnings or dangers of medicine you may be taking or medication that is prescribed to you, one can look at the new and improved FDA (Food and Drug Administration) web site for the answer. The FDA has a web site where you can search for information about FDA Alerts and what sort of side effects and drug interactions the FDA has heard about or warned against.
