By selecting a single medicine to check, the Drug Interactions function will display all known interactions according to MIMS’ extensive, primary-literature based, independent research. Users can either browse through the list of possibilities or nominate to check specific drug-drug interactions by adding another medicine to the search matrix. An application of this may be a patient who is on multiple medications and a clinician is looking to add another medication. The Drug Interactions information will provide the clinician with information as to whether the new drug will interact with the existing medications the patient is on. It will also provide guidance on what course of action might be needed in order to ensure safe administration of the new drug if interactions exist.
It is important to note that the MIMS Drug Interactions information is based on clinical documented peer-reviewed evidence – not the interactions that are suggested as part of the drug’s product information.
For each result of the Drug Interactions function, there is an ‘at-a-glance’ summary of the interaction, including the interacting drug, a severity rating, the level of supporting documentation and a brief statement outlining the nature of the interaction. The result for each drug-drug interaction can be readily emailed or printed from a PDF for use by the clinician.
By clicking on the “Interaction Details” tab, for any highlighted interaction, much greater detail is provided– based on published evidence - including:
This extensive database of drug interactions is constantly reviewed and updated, and is an integrated element of all MIMS digital products.
MIMS, through its UBM Medica’s decision support editorial team comprising qualified pharmacists or doctors, brings trusted decision support tools to the Australian healthcare professional.
The editors research, review and collate the information to be included in the database, and ensure that the information is accurate and up-to-date. To ensure optimum objectivity, data from product information, commercial or non-authoritative references is never used. Instead, the information is researched and reviewed using only international references and sources. A second editor proofreads all information before it is included in the database to ensure that the information is consistent and accurate.
"I strongly recommend. It has a wealth of information and it makes me confident choosing the right drug for the right person."
