Are real names or email addresses required?
After I review a medication, how soon will it show up?
What should I do when I see posts that are not appropriate?
Report them right away. Every review has a "report this post" button right below the content. If you see a post that you don't think is appropriate for our site (it might be spam, or a user bothering another user), then click that button and the system will send us an automatic email. If we find it violates our Terms and Conditions, then we’ll remove it permanently.
My review was edited or deleted. What comments are OK?
When you comment to rate your drugs and treatments, you must still abide by WebMD Terms and Conditions to which you agreed when you joined our site. Some reasons a comment may be deleted are use of profanity, using personally identifying information (such as your real name or email address or phone number or someone else’s real information), violating copyright, spam, or personal attacks.
What if I rethink my rating on a particular drug and want to change it?
Once you've reviewed your experience with a particular medication, that review goes live (so be careful before you click the submit button) within a few minutes. There may be cases, however, where your experience with a particular medication changes over time. In those cases, you’re free to submit a new review that better reflects your current situation.
What should I do if I or someone I know has experienced an adverse event from taking a drug or medication?
If you think you or someone in your family has experienced a serious reaction to a medical product, let the Food and Drug Administration know. You can report this yourself with the Online Reporting Form or take the reporting form to your doctor. You can find more information at FDA's MedWatch.
I have additional questions about a medication. Where can I ask them?
Right here at WebMD. We have online support groups with thousands of users talking about their treatment options, along with experts available for questions. Go to the WebMD Community to find the right group for you.
