The role of the United States (US) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with regard to To review characteristics of active REMS in the US for drugs with signifi cant known risks.
All REMS aimed at preventing birth defects or abuse/diversion included elements to assure safe use. Table 1 Table 2 displays drugs with approved REMS requiring components beyond a medication guide.
The requirement for medication guides and postmarketing drug safety has increased over time (Figure 1).
