Health Professional Medicines Information (PI)
What is PI?
Product Information (PI) is a technical document that helps guide health professionals on the best way to use a medicine. The PI is a scientific, objective account of a medicine’s usefulness and limitations. It contains information that is sufficient to ensure safe and effective use of the medicine under nearly all circumstances. For a description of the contents of a PI, see the Glossary.
- If you are not a health professional, bear in mind that the PI is written in scientific language and may not be easy to understand if you do not have a medical background. Always talk to your doctor or pharmacist about all aspects of your medicines, including why you are taking them and what benefits / risks you can expect.
- This website does not contain all PIs for medicines sold in Australia. If you do not find a PI for your medicine on this page, contact the pharmaceutical company who makes the medicine.
