Medication Safety and Adverse Events: Dataviews are used for research investigations into medication safety -- to find answers and to discover links for adverse drug events. SafeRx presents data from FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) and from FDA National Drug Code Directory. New sources of adverse drug event data will be added to SafeRx on an ongoing basis. Users can search, filter, link, explore and download adverse drug events data from the SafeRx Database. FAERS Data Elements: Definition, Interpretation and Assessment (SaferRx administrators only)


The FDA FAERS "Raw Data" Dataviews (SafeRx administrators only)

All Dataviews have Primary and Case IDs that link to Case Summary Reports. Drugs in the Case Summary Reports are primary suspect or secondary suspect. These are very long-running dataviews. Use them only when you want to view all FAERS data WITHOUT a search filter. Otherwise, you should use the FAERS Data Explorer.
