Description

This List of Medicines for Brand Consideration includes medicines prescribers should consider prescribing by brand name as well as active ingredient name, if clinically necessary for the treatment of their patient. For example, if formulations of the same active ingredient and strength are not interchangeable due to variations in delivery of the active ingredient, prescribers should consider specification by brand for patient safety.

The List of Medicines for Brand Consideration and the List of Excluded Medicinal Items are supplemental to the Active Ingredient Prescribing User Guide.
