imf30Medicines and more

Use IMF to get (or double-check) relevant prescribing, safety and practical information. This robust book includes the medicines, vaccines, medical devices and nutritional products licensed and marketed in Ireland today.
Designed for front-line use in busy clinical practice it swiftly answers medication queries. The information is rigorously edited and updated to ensure new products are included and obsolete products are removed.

Linking multi-disciplinary experts

Doctors, dentists, pharmacists, locums and nurses consult IMF for medication details. With it, they get the correct information, i.e. officially-approved and Ireland-specific.
Using IMF for medicines management helps to avoid medication errors in key settings including transition care and remote consultations.

Adults, Elderly Children and others

Prescribing information in IMF focuses on the various populations seen in daily clinical practice. Special attention is given to dosing in adults, elderly and children. There is no need to pay for an extra children’s medicines guide.
Clear advice is given for other populations including those with renal and/or hepatic impairment, pregnancy/lactation, sports medicines and potential effects of medicines on ability to drive safely.

Independent and Irish

There are no adverts in IMF, so no distractions. Guidance is based only on the factual details in line with Irish and EU regulation.
IMF is 100% Irish. It is completely independent with the single purpose of providing clinical content; it contains no drug advertising.
There is ongoing oversight and input from pharmacist, medical practitioner, regulatory and government agency sources;  only official, approved content is included.

The print version is published twice-yearly in March and September and the online version is updated on a rolling basis. It was established in 2007 and for almost 15 years has proven its accuracy and reliability.
