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.

  • PIL

    Patient Information Leaflet

    A PIL is the leaflet containing information on taking or using a medicine for patients, included with medicine packaging. It is written by pharmaceutical companies as a patient version of the SPC.

  • EDM

    Some pharmaceutical companies have chosen to display PIL in a HTML text only “Print View” version, called an XPIL, as well as in PDF format. The XPIL is designed for people with sight challenges.
