Disclaimer: This website does not include all the adverse drug reactions (ADRs) that may occur in practice. At present, the database only contains ADRs affecting 5 system organ classes. Thus, a search for a particular ADR may not yield any results. A negative search result should not be interpreted to mean that no drugs cause that particular ADR. The data was sourced from Summary of Product Characteristics (SPCs) of Medicinal products present in Malta. Thus, other drugs (available outside Malta), besides those enlisted may also be responsible for a particular ADR. This work was carried out by Stephanie Bezzina under the supervision of Dr. Maurice Zarb Adami as part of her submission for the degree of Master of Pharmacy.
