What does the black triangle ▼ mean?

The European Union has introduced a new way of identifying medicines that are being monitored particularly closely.          

These medicines have a black inverted triangle ▼ displayed in their package leaflet, together with a short sentence that reads: "This medicinal product is subject to additional monitoring."


„Additional monitoring“ doesn’t mean that the medicinal product is unsafe.
