If you or someone you know has/have experienced any side effect (minor or major) from a prescribed medication, I encourage you to go to the enclosed website and submit a MedWatch form if you'd like to let the FDA know about your side effect(s)/ adverse event. I just did this myself for Tamiflu which in my opinion, is the worst drug out there. Nausea and vomiting were almost deadly.
Note: You do not need to be a doctor or nurse to report your adverse event to a medication.
Here is the website:
MedWatch Reporting by Consumers
MedWatch is the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) program for reporting serious reactions, product quality problems and product use errors with human medical products, such as drugs and medical devices.
If you think you or someone in your family has experienced a serious reaction to a medical product, you are encouraged to take the reporting form to your doctor. Your health care provider can provide clinical information based on your medical record that can help us evaluate your report.
However, we understand that for a variety of reasons, you may not wish to have the form filled out by your health care provider, or your health care provider may choose not to complete the form. Your health care provider is NOT
required to report to the FDA. In these situations, you may complete the Online Reporting Form yourself via the internet.
You will receive an acknowledgement from FDA after we receive your report. You will be personally contacted only if we need additional information.
