Reporting a Suspected Adverse Drug Reaction

An Adverse Drug Reaction (ADR) is defined as a response to a drug which is noxious and unintended, and which occurs at doses normally used in humans for the prophylaxis, diagnosis or therapy of disease, or for the modification of physiological function.

If you suspect any untoward effect of your medicine, you are encouraged to report using the Suspected Adverse Drug Reaction Notification Form. This form has two sides- front and back- to which you are requested to refer.

Commonly reported ADRs include:

  • Rash
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Low blood pressure
  • Low blood sugar
  • ‘Ringing’ sounds in your ear
  • Kidney failure
  • Liver failure
  • Alteration in blood profiles
  • Death

Report even if:
You are not certain if the drug caused the reaction
You do not have all the details
