Snapshot of what’s new in IMF 31

Each new edition of IMF captures changes to the medicines licensed and marketed in Ireland since the previous edition.

It is important to note that the vast majority of updates occur in the prescribing and safety information for drug-classes and for individual medications. Such updates might include changes to recommended dosage, special precautions, potential drug interactions as well as practical details including reimbursement status and presentations available for each drug.
