You can report suspected side effects (also known as adverse drug reactions) to a medicine, vaccine, herbal or complementary remedy by clicking "Report Side.

Others appear after taking a medicine for a long time or even after stopping a medicine. Many side effects are mild, but some can be serious and even life-threatening. All medicines can cause side effects. Some may not yet be known so that's why it's important for people to report to the Yellow Card Scheme.

If you would like to comment on our website or report a technical problem please contact us.

If a new side effect is found, the MHRA will review the way that the medicine can be used, and the warnings that are given to people taking it to minimise risk and maximise benefit to the patient. Further information can be found under our FAQ section. It is important for people to report as these are used to identify side effects and other problems which might not have been known about before.

The Yellow Card Scheme, run by the MHRA and the Commission on Human Medicines, is used to collect information from both health professionals and the general public on suspected side effects.

The possibility of side effects from taking your inhaled preventer medicine is very low. Because the inhaled medicine goes straight down to the airways where it.

Some relievers can temporarily increase your heartbeat or give you mild muscle shakes. These effects are more common when taking high doses. However they generally wear off within a few minutes or a few hours at most. Relievers are a safe and effective medicine and have very few side effects.

There are very few other side effects from taking occasional (three to four) short courses of steroids per year. However it is important to keep the number of courses to a minimum by making sure you are using enough of your other regular inhaled medicines.
