Be Familiar With Nuances of REMS Requirements
Questions are coming up about meds that require Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies (REMS) by FDA.
When patients get these meds, they usually get printed materials that include worrisome warnings. And these are the meds that often require you to meet special requirements before you can prescribe them...clozapine, isotretinoin, thalidomide, etc.
FDA requires these drug safety programs for meds with serious safety concerns...to help ensure benefits outweigh risks.
