All about your medicines

From this page you can find comprehensive information about medicines, including known possible side effects, interactions and dosages.

Use the A-Z listings above to look up medicines by name or by the conditions they treat. The information covers drugs you might be prescribed and over-the-counter (OTC) medicines you can buy without a prescription.

Yellow Card scheme

Report medicine side effects

The YellowCard Scheme is run by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). 

The scheme allows patients and clinicians to report suspected side effects of medicines so they can be monitored.

YellowCard reports are continually assessed to ensure that medicines are safe and that risks are kept to a minimum.

 

Clinical trials

You can find clinical trials in the UK or worldwide for almost every condition in our Health A-Z. Read more about clinical trials and medical research and how you can take part.
