Understanding Medicines

Here we list all the medications that have been added to your record. For your current medications we show the ones started most recently first. For past medications we show the ones most recently stopped first.

Click a medication to show more details e.g. who entered the medication and when. We will also show coding information here if we have it .

For past medications we also show previous courses of the same medication, if that information came from the same source.

How do I add medications to my record?

Click 'Add medication' and complete the form.

How do I make changes to medications?

Click 'Edit' or 'Delete' beside the medication. You can only edit or delete medications that you have entered yourself. If you have not entered the medication but need it to be changed, please see our Reporting incorrect data page.

How do I change the privacy of medications?

Click on the pencil icon beside the privacy label of the medication. Note: changing the privacy may result in some professionals and carers no longer being able to view the medication.

See Privacy labels for more details on managing who can access your record.

How do I discuss a medication?

Select one or more medication(s) and click 'Discuss selections'.

See Events & Messages for more details on how messaging works in your record.
