Report a side effect from human medicines – for medicine users and relatives (e-form)

Getting started

Before you fill in the e-form describing a side effect you have experienced from treatment with medicine, there are a few things you should know.

We use the details you provide to build a clear picture of the side effect you have experienced. You must fill in the fields marked with a red star to be able to send the e-form, but it is of great help to us if you fill in all the fields as precisely as possible.

It may be a good idea to have the medicine pack ready when you enter information about the medicine and the manufacturing company.

It takes about ten minutes to fill in the e-form. If you have any questions, please call us on +45 44 88 95 95.

What happens after you have reported an adverse reaction?

We register your report in our database of side effects. We send it to the WHO and to the manufacturing company. If your report is classified as serious, we will also send it to the European Medicines Agency (EMA). The information is anonymised so that the recipients cannot see your name and address.

Our work with adverse reaction reports

Adverse reaction reports from citizens are an important part of our monitoring of the safety of the medicines we use in Denmark.

Together with the EMA and the other regulatory authorities in the EU we regularly assess whether new information about adverse reactions means that the medicine’s package leaflet should be changed. The pharmaceutical company is also obliged to assess the safety of the medicine continuously, and for that purpose they use all adverse reaction reports received from all parts of the world.

All known adverse reactions from a medicinal product must appear from the package leaflet. You can find the package leaflets of all medicinal products authorised in Denmark at or
