MIMS updates the medicines data each month with at least 150 changes to the product information each month. It is very important therefore that users of eMIMS ensure that they have the latest information at their fingertips.

We send an updated eMIMS DVD three times per year – April, August and December. However, in between these release the monthly updates are provided on this site.

Full instructions on how to update the eMIMS application are detailed below.

Errata

eMIMS Classic Erratum April 2020 DVD
A warning is incorrectly showing when the program is started. This can be rectified by applying the May downloadable update (FullEmimsMay20a.exe). If the May downloadable update was obtained before the fix was included, this problem can be fixed by applying this patch.

eMIMS Classic Erratum May 2020
The new format PI for Lopresor (Metoprolol tartrate) from Novartis Pharmaceuticals Australia Pty Ltd that is present in the May 2020 update has text in an unusual location. This is not being displayed correctly by the current version of eMIMS Classic. The missing text is in Section 6. Pharmaceutical Particulars:
Metoprolol tartrate is an aryloxypropanolamine derivative. It is a white, odourless or almost odourless, crystalline powder with a melting point of 120°C. It is very soluble in water, soluble in chloroform, methylene chloride and alcohol, and almost insoluble in benzene, diethylether and acetone.

The complete section of the PI can be seen here to show this in context.

The display will be adjusted by the updated program that is included in the May 2020 downloadable update (FullEmimsMay20a.exe) from the 4th May 2020.
