Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 9, 2010
Now those who depend upon pharmaceuticals can also rely on their Apple iPhones to keep them updated with official FDA alerts and other potentially life-saving information, thanks to a revolutionary new application. The new application, named Drug Alert, generates current data from the FDA including easy-to-read and understand menu displays of side effects, overdose symptoms, and the latest FDA Drug Safety Alerts.
The application also delivers Adverse Event Reports, which are FDA findings based on undesirable effects experienced by patients. Drug Alert presents a summary of Adverse Event Reports for any selected drug, based on the most recent year of available reports. Users of the application can even file their own Adverse Event Report with the FDA, directly from their iPhone, at the touch of a button.
This can be done anonymously, if the user prefers, or submitted on behalf of a friend or family member without ever revealing the patient’s name. To initiate the reporting process and potentially save other innocent consumers from suffering their own unwanted and potentially dangerous drug reactions, the iPhone user simply hits the “Call FDA” button at the bottom of the application screen.
Another convenient feature included in Drug Alert is notification of FDA Drug Safety Alerts that are issued to inform consumers of drug safety issues. These can also be viewed on the FDA website, directly from the application, by using any viable Internet connection.
Direct smart phone communication with the FDA is an extraordinary benefit, especially when it can be done in a simplified language with an intuitive tool that requires absolutely no technical training or medical know-how. But the new Drug Alert application was intentionally designed and formatted to present critical information in a way that any layperson can understand, and the entire program is geared toward the average consumer. Look up side effects, find out if reactions to medicines are considered normal or unusual, or get in touch with the FDA automatically to report suspicious symptoms.
Of course the application is not a diagnostic tool or a substitute for physician supervision and care, but is focused instead on giving consumers legitimate and important educational information. Drug Alert covers more than 1600 different prescription drugs so that users can detect side effects and identify potential overdose symptoms before they get out of control. That makes this remarkable technology an essential must-have tool for every prescription drug consumer.
