Reporting of problems with over-the-counter medicines, etc.
It is important that the pharmacies and the Danish Health and Medicines Authority share knowledge about inappropriate use of medicines. For example, if a pharmacy suspects that medicines are used for other purposes than the intended, or if a particular package or dosage causes problems, it is important to share this information.
Pharmacies are directly in touch with the users of medicines and sometimes therefore the first to spot new signals of growing misuse, or inappropriate use of over-the-counter medicines.
The cooperation between the Danish Health and Medicines Authority and the pharmacies is not intended to cover reports of isolated cases, inappropriateness in the prescribing of prescription-only medicines or reports of side effects from medicines.
