Medicines help to prevent, treat or cure disease. Some are available over the counter, others need a prescription from a health practitioner. Find out what we’re doing to help make sure medicines in Australia are safe, good quality and accessible, and do what they say they will do.
Contact Medicines Line on 1300 MEDICINE for information on prescription, over-the-counter and other medicines (such as complementary medicines). The service is available Monday to Friday, 9 am to 5 pm AEST (excluding NSW public holidays).
