Side effects

In addition to its desired effects, every active ingredient also has side effects, aka undesirable effects. It is the responsibility of the doctor and pharmacist to weigh up the benefits and risks for the patient. The prescribing information and patient information are a good source for a comprehensive list of possible side effects. Our service is based on these sources and the scientific literature and offers added value by summarizing the most important side effects and by personalizing important risks for the patient.
