The eMC and pharmaceutical companies, who provide the information on our website, encourage you to report all suspected problems or incidents, including side effects that you suspect might be associated with a healthcare product or device. These problems also include defective and counterfeit/fake products.
Healthcare professionals and patients themselves can report suspected problems using the Yellow Card Scheme website, which is run by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), a UK government agency monitoring medicines.
Comprehensive reporting and monitoring should lead to the safer use of medicines and devices, whilst also helping to improve public health.
