Humans vary in their biological reactions to medicinal products. This is why not all adverse reaction (side effects) or adverse events associated with the use of medicinal products can be detected during clinical development, not even by the most comprehensive clinical trials. Capturing as many of these adverse reactions or adverse events, however rare they may be in absolute terms, from worldwide sources is of paramount importance for continued patient and drug safety (pharmacovigilance).
For Otsuka as a global pharmaceutical company, pharmacovigilance takes center stage, beyond mere compliance with worldwide regulations.
To enable Otsuka to provide up-to date safety information on Otsuka products, your support is pivotal, whether you are a customer, patient or healthcare professional.
If you want to report a side effect or quality complaint, please contact your healthcare professional (e.g. physician or pharmacist) or your local health authority.
