About medicines.ie

medicines.ie contains accurate, up to date, regulator approved information on medicines available in Ireland. The site is designed to be a comprehensive and easily searchable source of medicines information in Ireland.

It is widely regarded as an invaluable reference source by healthcare professionals, the National Medicines Information Center and the Department of Health.

The information for each product comes in the form of a Summary of Product Characteristics (SPC or SmPC) and Patient Information Leaflet (PIL) or Package Leaflet (PL), where relevant. These documents are approved by the medicines’ regulator ( HPRA or EMA ) as part of the process of authorising a medicine for sale or supply in Ireland.

medicines.ie is continuously updated by pharmaceutical companies when new medicines are launched or the information for an existing medicine changes.
