Important information about the Database of Adverse Event Notifications (DAEN) – medicines
- Inclusion in the DAEN - medicines does not mean that the details of the event have been confirmed, or that the event has been determined to be related to a medicine or a vaccine.
- We encourage people to report suspected side effects (also known as adverse events), even when it is not clear that a medicine or vaccine was the cause. These suspected side effects are listed in the DAEN - medicines and reflect the observations of the person who reported the event.
- The TGA uses adverse event data, together with other scientific information, to identify and investigate potential safety issues for medicines and vaccines.
If you are experiencing an adverse event, please seek advice from a health professional as soon as possible. Do not stop, start or change the dose of your prescription medicines without talking to your doctor or pharmacist first.
