Currently, many drugs that are routinely used to treat children are not licensed for use in this age group. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency pharmacovigilance database does not differentiate between suspected ADRs for drugs that may or may not have a licence for use in children, therefore this breakdown of the data is not provided.
It is important to note that a report of an adverse drug reaction does not necessarily mean that it was caused by the drug. Many factors have to be taken into account in assessing causal relationships including temporal association, the possible contribution of concomitant medication and the underlying disease.
