Consumer Reporting of Side Effects
(Note: If you are a Healthcare Professional, please click here to report a medicinal problem or adverse drug reaction.)
Please report any side effects to medicines or vaccines [adverse events following immunisation (AEFI)] that you or someone you care for has experienced to the National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency (NPRA), Ministry of Health Malaysia. Your reports help improve the safe use of medicines in Malaysia.
A side effect (or adverse drug reaction –ADR) is defined as any unintended effect of a medicine which occurs at the normal dose used. Please report any side effect you find troubling, even if you are not certain it is due to the medicine or vaccine.
