    Benefits of knowing about Health Cda's website

    Hello Everyone. I tend to criticize Health Cda from time to time, but they do have some good info on their website. http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/index-eng.php .

    For example if you want to ck to see if there are any recent health product problems or recalls of a product you can go to http://www.healthycanadians.gc.ca/re...gn=promobutton You can also do like I did and sign up for automatic email notification of any problems with drug and health products.

    Believe it or not, if it's a voluntary recall of a drug product, you probably won't get a call from your drug store advising you of this recall. However if you see a voluntary recall you can usually take your recalled meds in and get a replacement. You can also sign up for any food, auto etc recalls or problems.

    The area that I use most to find out info about any medications that I use is the Drug Product Data Base http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/dhp-mps/prodp.../index-eng.php This data base provides a wealth of info on the meds that we take.

    Health Cda's website isn't the most user friendly website that I've came across, but it does have a done of info. Take Care. paul m

    Very cool Paul thanks for this info. I like the idea of knowing about recall I will sign up. I rely heavily on the FDA,CDC,and John Hopkins data base.
