Reporting Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs)

Australia’s regulatory agency for medicines has a system for monitoring side effects of medicines that are used in Australia. It is a voluntary system that relies on reports of suspected side effects from health professionals and consumers. In order to gain a comprehensive safety profile of a medicine, a continuous post-marketing monitoring system is essential.

If you suspect that your patient has experienced an adverse reaction to a medicine, you can report it directly to Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) by visiting tga.gov.au/reporting-problems, then clicking the Health Professionals tab and completing the report electronically. Consumers are also encouraged to ask you to report suspected adverse reactions on their behalf.
