Summary

The MedSearch™ app is designed to help Australian patients, carers, doctors, nurses and pharmacists to find, view and save Consumer Medicine Information (CMI) and Product Information (PI) documents for registered prescription medicines. 

For each medication, there is a CMI leaflet.

This helps the patient or carer to find:

  • Names of the active and inactive ingredients
  • Recommended dosage
  • What the medicine is approved for and how it works
  • Warnings and precautions, such as when the medicine should not be taken
  • Interactions the medicine might have with food or other medicines
  • How to use the medicine properly
  • The most common or most serious side effects
  • What to do in the case of an overdose
  • How to store the medicine properly.
For more detailed product information, for example for healthcare professionals, each summary includes:
  • Scientific information relevant to the treatment’s safe and effective use as a prescription medicine. 
  • Clinical trial evidence
  • Adverse/side effects
  • Guidance on dosage and administration, overdosage and interaction with other medicines.

Reviews

Reviewer: Australian charity, Diabetes Australia
Review:

“Medsearch is a free app to help you find, view and save documents for registered prescription medicines included on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods.

The app means you can keep information about your medicines in one place and it also allows you to share information with family and friends.”
