DRUG INFORMATION CENTER

The Drug Information Center has a wealth of information to help you understand how drugs impact your health as well as their place in today’s healthcare environment. We also display recalled medical products including drugs and medical devices. The recall information is taken directly from the website of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA posts press releases and other notices of recalls and market withdrawals from the firms involved as a service to consumers, the media, and other interested parties. For complete Drug Recall Information, go directly to the FDA MedWatch website at: http://www.fda.gov/medwatch/safety.htm.
