FDA Initiates Bad Ad Reporting
Help the FDA make sure prescription advertising and promotion is truthful and not misleading.


  • Food and Drug Administration (FDA) MedWatch Program
    MedWatch is the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) program for reporting serious reactions and problems with medical products, such as drugs and medical devices.  The medical community and its physicians cannot appreciate the hazards of lindane, lice sprays, and other pesticidal treatment products until adverse reactions and treatment failures are identified and reported. If you have noticed an adverse reaction or a treatment failure, please fill out this form.
     
    • Adverse Reactions for Lice or Scabies Products
      Any incident where the use of a product is suspected to have resulted in harm to the patient or the person applying treatment. It is NOT necessary to be certain of a cause/effect relationship between the adverse event and the use of the product(s) in question. Suspicion of an association is sufficient.
       
    • Treatment Failures for Lice or Scabies Products
      Any report regarding the quality, performance, or safety of any product. Product problems include, but are not limited to, such concerns as: questionable effectiveness, therapeutic failures, and confusion (caused by name, labeling, instructions, design or packaging)
