Pharmacovigilance is the science relating to the detention, evaluation, understanding and prevention of adverse effects or other problems related to medicines.

An adverse reaction is any reply to the use of a medicine that is harmful and non-intentional, which occurs in the normally used doses in human beings.

Notifications of adverse reactions are of great importance for the Pharmacovigilance System of the Medquímica Pharmaceutical Industry, therefore they help to improve the quality and safety of our products, with responsibility shared between notifying institutions, health professionals and consumers of our medicines.
