” Drug side effects are now a leading cause of death, disability, and illness. Experts estimate that only 1–10% of “serious” adverse events (those causing hospitalization, disability, or death) are ever reported. Not to mention the millions of “medically mild” adverse drug events that occur each year — ones that compromise a person’s concentration, functioning, judgment, and ability to care.
RxISK is the first free, independent website where patients, doctors, and pharmacists can research prescription drugs and easily report a drug side effect — identifying problems and possible solutions earlier than is currently happening. ”
No one knows a prescription drug’s side effects like the person taking it. Make your voice heard!
RxISK Medical Team includes Dr. David Healy.

There is also an anecdotal forum of self-reported patient reactions to drugs – Individuals are provided the opportunity to post comments about the drug, length of time taken, side effects, and rate its effectiveness along with personal observations.
When my mother was ill and her physicians would prescribe meds, this would be on place I would go directly to learn of side effects. Also for my own medications.
