Overview

AusDI (Australian Drug Information) contains over 80,000 pages of Australian medicines information, a product identifier tool, and interactions and safety modules. Features include:

  • Find products easily via browse or advanced search technologies using brand name, ingredient, indication or therapeutic class.
  • Search the Product Identifier module to identify an unknown product by its physical characteristics such as shape, scoring, colour or markings. Link back to more clinical information from search results.
  • Use the Interactions and Safety Module to Identify clinically significant warnings between multiple pairs of drugs (e.g. Drug-drug, Drug-food, etc.)
