Consumer Medicine Information (CMI) is provided by pharmaceutical manufacturers to help patients better understand the medicines they take. You may ask your doctor or pharmacist to provide the CMI when prescribing or dispensing your medicine.
The CMI provides easy to understand information about how to use your medicine, by explaining:
- what the medicine is used for;
- how to take it;
- possible side-effects; and
- the ingredients contained in the medicine.
Reading the CMI does not replace talking to your doctor or pharmacist. If you have any questions or concerns about your medicine, you should discuss them with your healthcare professional. For more information about your medicines, please contact your doctor or pharmacist.
CMIs for all medicines are available directly from your doctor or pharmacist. You may also download the latest CMI for a MSD medicine from this website, or call MSD on 1800 818 553.
More information about CMIs is available from the Medicines Australia website.
