Ferozsons Laboratories Limited has a rich legacy of standing by its values and ‘Putting Patients First’ is the forerunner amongst our values. A recent campaign on raising awareness for Drug Safety and Adverse Events reporting is line with our commitment for patient centricity in everything we do. For patients and physicians, it is very important to be aware of drug safety and adverse events reporting. To this end, Ferozsons launched a social media campaign via which we aim to help people understand the value of reporting any side effects they may have after using a certain medicine. This is an important measure by which the safety of medicines and treatment of patients undergoes a process of continuous improvement. A few topics simplified and explained through interesting videos and posts on our Facebook page, include;
