My Medicines

My Medicines provides information for patients about medicines used in New Zealand. We use plain language that can be understood by most New Zealand adults. We aim to include important points to help people make good decisions about taking a medicine, but not every possible detail because we don’t want to overload people with information. If you have questions about your medicine, talk to your pharmacist, nurse or doctor.

My Medicines hosts 514 information sheets. Click on a button or menu item to find medicines sorted by name, or use the Search My Medicines box.

Some My Medicines sheets are also available in Te Reo Māori.

For more information about the sheets, see: What does a My Medicines sheet cover?

About My Medicines

My Medicines Patient Information Leaflets (PILs) contain important, but not all, information about the medicines they describe.

For more information about the sheets, see: What does a My Medicines sheet cover?

My Medicines is developed by a team at the Canterbury District Health Board. Our team is made up of doctors, pharmacists, and a non-medical person to help us keep to plain language. We also discuss our information with specialist health professionals or groups when needed
