United Kingdom Medicine and Drug Information

Overview

United Kingdom Medicine and Prescription Drug Database

Welcome to the epgonline.org United Kingdom and Northern Ireland medicine and prescription drug database. Where practical the information within this database includes the Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical (ATC) classification and is also organised around 48 major disease topics. This database is compiled by our editors using information obtained from sources such as the European Medicines Agency or Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and other reputable sources of information on prescription only medicines (POM). Each record relates to an approved medicine and provides the drug name (including generic), compound and registered marketing authorisation holder. Where practical we also make available an overview of the related disease or condition along with links to sources & references of information we have used. Each record in the database includes a selection of information from, or a direct link to, each respective medicines full summary of product characteristics (SPCs or SmPCs.)

Our editors also make available text ‘snippets’ from clinical trials, medical journal abstracts, clinical guidelines and other sources of information related to each medicine. Access to this database is subject to epgonline.org terms of use, is intended as a research tool for doctors and other healthcare professionals and is not an alternative to professional medical advice.
