Exclamation FDA Medwatch & MedEffect Canada - Report adverse effects

If you have experienced serious side effects to a treatment (whether a drug or medical device) that were never disclosed or discussed, it's probably because the FDA is not aware of it. You may be able to help others be more informed with their choices by submitting a report to the FDA.

I wrote the FDA regarding the bone loss I have experienced in taking the current medication I am on, explaining that no one has ever told me I could experience this. They said in their reply that has not been found at this point but to post it in their medwatch and if they start to see a trend, they would look into helping us as consumers. So...think about helping out if you're wondering about a side effect.
