Australia's Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) announced its adverse reactions database hit a milestone 4 April, logging a quarter of a million valid reports.
The database, which has been running since 1971, is used by TGA to determine is regulatory action is necessary to protect the public from an already-approved product.
"The TGA would like to thank all report contributors," the agency said in a statement. "Such information is vital to TGA efforts to promote the ongoing safe use of medicines in the community."
