An up-to-date and authoritative online resource providing information about most of the therapeutic drugs marketed in Australia.
The Australian Medicines Handbook (AMH) is produced jointly by 3 organisations the Australasian Society of Clinical and Experimental Pharmacologists and Toxicologists (ASCEPT), the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), and the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA). It is a required resource for practising Australian pharmacists.
According to the AMH itself, its philosophy is to use the best available evidence to support prescribing and dispensing recommendations. It has two purposes: to provide readily accessible, concise, up-to-date, and independent drug information: and to provide an educational tool for practitioners and students.
AMH includes information on indications, precautions, dosage, adverse effects, and drug interactions, and covers new drugs, blood products, immunoglobulins, and specialised drugs.
There is a set of Guides which provide general guidance on prescribing, and specific advice about medication use in special populations such as pregnant women. There are also descriptions of general issues such as drug availability in Australia, use of drugs in sport, and the reporting of adverse effects.
The online Handbook is updated in January and July of each year.
