Want to See Adverse Events of Drugs You are Taking? Try This Site

New to me is the site FDAble, which says it is "A fast, simple search engine for all drug and vaccine Adverse Event information reported to the FDA."

I entered these search parameters: "Drug Names: viagra OR sildenafil AND Reaction Names: death AND the outcome of the event was DE AND the person reporting the event was MD"

I got 140 hits. Is that a lot?

I'll leave it up to you to search for yourself and report back to me.
