The DHPR :

  • includes all marketed drugs for human use with their related side effect reports
  • publishes specific consumer information on drugs, such as what the drug is used for, side effects and ingredients

This information is published when companies have submitted a bilingual, approved Product Monograph Part III: Patient Medication Information.

The DHPR now includes Health Canada Summary Report documents. This includes Regulatory Decision Summaries (RDSs), Summary Basis of Decision (SBDs) and Summary Safety Reviews (SSRs).

This information will help you:

  • make more informed decisions
  • speak with your health care provider

To view and search the information, select the “Summary Reports” tab above.
