This section presents the necessary information for users to notify to the Spanish Service of Pharmacovigilance (SEFV-H) adverse reactions to medicines that have been observed.
Information presented below is a summary of what is said on the informative website on Pharmacovigilance of the Spanish Agency of Medicines and Health Products (Agencia Española de Medicamentos y Productos Sanitarios or AEMPS).
PHARMACOVIGILANCE: WHICH EFFECT SHOULD I NOTIFY AND HOW ?
Pharmacovigilance consists on the collection of information about adverse effects (ADR: Adverse Drug Reactions) which medicines for human use can produce.
In Spain there is a pharmacovigilance system for medicines for human use called Sistema Español de Farmacovigilancia de Medicamentos de Uso Humano (SEFV-H), whose purpose is to gather the cases in which adverse drug reactions are suspected of, both those identified by health professionals or by citizens.
An adverse effect or reaction, is a non-expected or not-desired response to a drug. Adverse reactions to medicines may arise both during the treatment or after its completion, and it can happen that until a lot of people use it for an extended period of time, these adverse effects are not detected.
For that reason it is very important that patients inform a doctor, pharmacist or other health professional about these effects, or that they notify them directly to the AEMPS using an electronic form (it is a notification, not a complaints mechanism). Anyone can notify it.
If you suffer a symptom that you think that may be a side effect, the first thing to do is to read the patient information leaflet (PIL) to check if it is included within the known reactions. The notification to your doctor or pharmacist of the possible adverse reaction of which you suspect is recommended. And you can also notify it from the website of the AEMPS, on the following link: https://www.notificaram.es/
