We Point Out Some Resources From FDA and National Library of Medicine Which Will Get You Started


(Posted by Tom Lamb at Drug Injury Watch)


At the Law Offices of Thomas J. Lamb, we represent people in drug injury cases where there is a serious injury or death involving a prescription drug and the legal liability rests with a pharmaceutical company based on products liability law.

When investigating relevant background facts for potential drug injury cases, we often start with these reliable resources:

DailyMed from the U.S. National Library of Medicine

The National Library of Medicine (NLM)’s DailyMed searchable database provides the most recent labeling submitted to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by companies and currently in use (i.e., “in use” labeling). DailyMed contains labeling for prescription and nonprescription drugs for human and animal use, and for additional products such as medical gases, devices, cosmetics, dietary supplements, and medical foods. The NLM provides DailyMed to the public and does not accept advertisements. The labeling on DailyMed is typically reformatted to make them easier to read.

Drugs@FDA: FDA-Approved Drugs from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration

Drugs@FDA includes information about drugs, including biological products, approved for human use in the United States (see FAQ), but does not include information about FDA-approved products regulated by the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (for example, vaccines, allergenic products, blood and blood products, plasma derivatives, cellular and gene therapy products). For prescription brand-name drugs, Drugs@FDA typically includes the most recent labeling approved by the FDA (for example, Prescribing Information and FDA-approved patient labeling when available), regulatory information, and FDA staff reviews that evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the drug.

Drug Safety and Availability
from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration

Information for consumers and health professionals on new drug warnings and other safety information, drug label changes, and shortages of medically necessary drug products.

FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS)
from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration

FDA Adverse Event Reporting System supports the FDA’s post-marketing safety surveillance program for all marketed drug and therapeutic biologic products. It contains adverse event reports FDA has received from manufacturers as required by regulation along with reports received directly from consumers and healthcare professionals. We provide downloadable files only; you cannot search the database online.
