Reviews

Reviewer: Carcinoid Cancer Foundation, USA
Review: "For healthcare practitioners and the general public. Allows them to track alerts and report side effects of medications. Alerts users about new drug warnings through official FDA channels (such as 'MedWatch Alerts') and through informal channels (including news media). Using separate forms for the public and the medical community, this user-friendly tool reports information about drug side effects."
