By    | 

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is surveying consumers and health professionals about their experience of medication side effects or adverse events

Investigation of adverse event (‘side effect’) reports is an important way the TGA monitors the safety of medicines and vaccines used in Australia.

Both health professionals and consumers can provide vital first-hand information about their experiences and how these have affected them, the TGA said. The consumer survey includes questions on prescription and OTC medications, herbal remedies, sunscreens, moisturisers and makeup.

All responses are anonymous and the survey does not collect any personally identifying information.
