In Episode #12, we’re taking a quick moment to speak directly to those who have been harmed by medications. We’re also reminding people about World Benzodiazepine Day which happens on July 11.

Show note links:

We’ve shared these before (when we talked about benzodiazepines on Episode #6) but sharing again…

World Benzodiazepine Day is July 11. Learn more and participate now. 

Benzodiazepine Information Coalition (another great resource).

Report your side effects (also called adverse drug reactions) to the FDA. Don’t wait. Do it today. Call 1-800-FDA-1088 or 1-800-332-1088. Both patients and health care providers can report and if you’re a family member of a patient, then you can report on their behalf. The FDA is unable to monitor drug safety without your reporting and there’s a nationwide under-reporting of side effects. So please help and spread the word!
