The Food and Drug Administration has created a first-of-its-kind web page for consumers and health care professionals that will include a variety of comprehensive safety information about prescription drugs. Categories of information on the web page include:

  • Consumer information about using medications safely and disposing of unused medicines;
  • Drug labeling, including patient labeling, professional labeling and patient package inserts;
  • A searchable database of post-market studies that are required from, or agreed to by, drug companies to provide the FDA with additional information about a drug's safety, efficacy or optimal use;
  • Consumer articles on drug safety;
  • Clinicaltrials.gov, a searchable database of clinical trials, including information about each trial's purpose, who may participate, locations and useful phone numbers;
  • Drug-specific safety information, including safety sheets with the latest information about the drug as well as related FDA press announcements, fact sheets and drug safety podcasts;
  • Warning Letters, Import Alerts, Recalls, Market Withdrawals and Safety Alerts; and
  • Regulations and guidance documents.
