Over 500,000 adverse events are reported for medications yearly to the FDA; estimated to be only 10% of all actual adverse events. If you experience a negative side effect taking a drug and want to report it, or if you are a drug developer and you want to research negative side effects, you can at FDA.gov in a section called Adverse Event Reporting System. There you will find tens of thousands of adverse events listed and connected to thousands of drugs. Or you can go to AdverseEvents.com, a new website that provides accurate, real-time information on adverse drug events that are reported to the FDA. Using a unique data sourcing method, the site is a user-friendly, fully searchable, database of over 4,000 approved medications. Joining us today is the President of AdverseEvents, Brian Overstreet. Brian just launched his new company at Health 2.0 on Sept 26-27.
