Featured FDA Resources
News, Announcements and Other Resources - The Food and Drug Administration provides a wealth of information on the Interent. We have organized this FDA information into one easy to navigate web page for pharmacy professionals.
Consumer Publications - In response to requests from consumers, the FDA Office of Women's Health has developed a series of drug charts that provide reliable, easy-to-read information about FDA-approved medicines for specific health problems.

These charts are not intended to replace product labeling but are instead a tool for consumers to gain very basic information about these products. In addition, consumers can use the charts to talk with a doctor, nurse, or pharmacist about the risks and benefits of using their medicines.
Medication Guides - Medication Guides are paper handouts that come with many prescription medicines. The guides address issues that are specific to particular drugs and drug classes, and they contain FDA-approved information that can help patients avoid serious adverse events. FDA requires that Medication Guides be issued with certain prescribed drugs and biological products when the Agency determines that:
  • certain information is necessary to prevent serious adverse effects
  • patient decision-making should be informed by information about a known serious side effect with a product, or
  • patient adherence to directions for the use of a product are essential to its effectiveness

Pregnancy Exposure Registries - FDA began requiring some pharmaceutical manufacturers to conduct pregnancy exposure registries. The results of these studies will provide pregnant women and their health care providers' better understanding of drug effects on fetal health. FDA/OWH developed a master directory of pregnancy registries to aid pregnant women who are taking medications to participate in these important studies.
