Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs) and withdrawal effects changing mood and behaviour, need to be studied and understood.
We hope the information will be valuable for doctors and prescribers and those of us who rely on them to stay well.
Informed choice is the key, as awareness saves lives.
How many more stories like the Sodium Valproate tragedy, of harm from medicines, will we have to hear before the medical profession have the kind of education we believe they are deprived of? Not only were women not informed, some prescribers played down the risks.
We all have a right to know about even so called rare adverse drug reactions (ADRs) . Who knows how rare, when less than 10% of serious ADRs are reported? (MHRA statistic)
The warnings are often overlooked by prescribers and informed choice denied to patients. The voices of those who suffer, or are bereaved, often fall on deaf ears.
