The Food and Drug Administration will begin a quarterly posting of drugs whose safety is under investigation because of complaints filed by drug companies, physicians and patients.
The FDA will name the drug and the nature of the “adverse events” but will not describe the number of complaints or how serious the events were, FDA officials said.
The FDA has an Adverse Event Reporting System that last year logged 482,154 unsolicited reports of potential reactions to drugs. Many of the reported problems had nothing to do with the medication a patient was taking, the agency said.
