Reporting Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs)

Australia’s regulatory agency for medicines has a system for monitoring side effects of medicines that are used in Australia. It is a voluntary system that relies on reports of suspected side effects from health professionals and consumers. In order to gain a comprehensive safety profile of a medicine, a continuous post-marketing monitoring system is essential.

If you suspect that your patient has experienced an adverse reaction to a medicine, you can report it directly to Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) by visiting, then clicking the Health Professionals tab and completing the report electronically. Consumers are also encouraged to ask you to report suspected adverse reactions on their behalf.
