On several occasions, I have encouraged our readers to subscribe to the publication Worst Pills, Best Pills News. I have also recommended that our readers check WorstPills.org for warnings about new drugs. But in addition to those excellent sources, we should always review the newest product label for any new drug that is prescribed for us. FDA-approved products labels can be found online at the DailyMed website (http://dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/). If a drug that a person is taking requires a Medication Guide, it can be found in the product label or at www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm085729.htm. But, also remember that this guide should be distributed to you when you fill or refill your prescription. If you don’t get it, ask the pharmacists to provide it.
It should also be noted that consumers may report serious adverse events or product quality problems to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program online or by regular mail, fax or phone. These are your contact points: Online: www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/medwatch/medwatch-online.htm. Regular mail: Use postage-paid, pre-addressed FDA form 3500 and mail to MedWatch, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20852-9787. The fax number is (800) FDA-0178 and the phone is (800) FDA-1088.
