Understand Drug Side Effects and Adverse Events


Understand Drug Side Effects and Adverse Events

In the shadow of recent severe health problems caused by irresponsible repackaging (compounding) of drugs for use in the clinics, MD Support offers a free audio/visual presentation to help patients understand drug side effects and adverse events. Speaking to the International Low Vision Support Group, Dan Roberts addresses the compounding issue as part of a broader discussion of side effects, adverse events, prescribing guidelines for doctors, drug interactions, off-label drugs, and generic drugs.
The 27-minute presentation, “Understanding Drug Side Effects and Adverse Events”, may be found in the MD Support Audio/Visual Library. The complete text of the presentation may be downloaded in PDF format by selecting this link.

We offer resources and free materials for those living with low vision.
