Monitoring communications

The TGA emphasises that patients should NOT stop using a medicine or medical device subject to a monitoring communication.  If you have any concerns with a therapeutic product you are using, please contact your health professional. A monitoring communication does not mean that the medicine or medical device causes an adverse event.

A monitoring communication highlights potential safety concerns identified by the TGA with a therapeutic product. These concerns have not been fully investigated. The appearance of a safety concern in this section does not mean that the TGA has concluded that the medicine or medical device causes an adverse event.

All monitoring communications issued will have a subsequent communication advising of the outcome.
