How to report adverse reactions to supplements

Posted Jun 30 2010 10:41am

I have often complained that no one seems to be interested in collecting adverse event data from alternative medical treatments. For example, one child who was a test case in the Omnibus Autism Proceeding (the vaccine court) appears to have reacted very negatively to chelation. We only heard about this because the Omnibus proceeding. DAN and other organizations do not seem to be collecting or reporting on adverse events.

I have often read adverse reactions to alternative therapies in online forums. No one seems to consider reporting those.

In searching for information on supplements, I did find this FDA site for reporting adverse reactions .

There is an online form, MedWatch Online Voluntary Reporting Form (3500) , which can be used to report adverse events.

I can not find a database comparable to VAERS which has the data from these reports compiled for view. Since I have never read of anyone reporting their bad reaction to an alternative medical treatment, I doubt whatever database the FDA is keeping is very complete.

If you want to reference this post in your site, use the code below to link to me from your website.
