08/08/2018 23:46

FDA has launched a new Medication Guide database to replace the current Medication Guide web page. Medication guides are provided with many prescription medicines. A Medication Guide is a form of patient labeling that is part of the FDA-approved prescription drug labeling. Medication Guides address issues that are specific to particular prescription drugs or biologic products and can help patients avoid serious
adverse events.

Features of the new medication guide database include:

•    active ingredient and brand name search for medication guides,
•    download capabilities to CSV and Excel spreadsheets,
•    streamlined data entry for faster database updates and,
•    improved mobile device usability.
