What is medicines.org.au?
This website is the centralised source of approved Australian medicine information for consumers and health professionals that is up to date and free of charge.
This website contains information on medicines in the form of Consumer Medicine Information (CMI) and Product Information (PI) in the latest versions provided by the pharmaceutical companies. These companies are required by the regulatory agency to keep the PIs and CMIs up to date as new information becomes available. This website is updated within hours of release of the CMI or PI by the pharmaceutical company.
The CMI and PI documents, are sourced from and authored by the pharmaceutical companies that manufacture and/or distribute these medicines. The manufacturer/distributor information is contained within each document, in addition to the document revision or release date.
Our aim is to support Australia’s national strategy for the Quality Use of Medicines, whose goal is to make the best possible use of medicines to improve health outcomes for all Australians.
