Report An Adverse Drug Reaction

Report a side effect or other safety information

Please note that you should consult your general practitioner or other qualified health care provider if you:


  • Experience a health problem
  • Have questions regarding your personal health
  • You (or the person concerned if you are reporting on someone else’s behalf) are experiencing side effect(s) related to the use of a medicinal product  

If you are participating in a clinical trial, please report the side effect to your study site.


When we receive a report of a potential adverse drug reaction, the report will be entered in the Lundbeck Safety Database and it will be evaluated by a team of medical doctors, nurses and pharmacists. In case of any ambiguity or missing information in the report, we are obliged to contact the reporter for additional information, if consent is provided. If the report is received from a patient, we will ask for permission to contact the patient’s doctor to confirm the provided information and potentially also request additional relevant information in order for us to assess the case.


Adverse drug reaction reports will be reported as individual cases to worldwide Health Authorities and also included in cumulative reports according to National Legislation and requirements. In addition, they will be included in the ongoing monitoring for new signals that will help us to identify potential new risks associated with our products. Patient information and other personal data reported to Lundbeck will be further processed in an anonymized manner according to current Data Protection laws.


If you experience a potential adverse drug reaction, please consult your doctor for advice.
